Industry Minister Ed Husic has congratulated the newest appointee to the CSIRO Board, Emeritus Professor Roy Green.
Green is well known for his writings in @AuManufacturing which can be read here, as well for numerous papers and publications internationally on innovation policy and management.
Roy has had a distinguished career including as Dean of the Macquarie Graduate School of Management, Dean and Vice-President for Research at the National University of Ireland, Galway and Dean of University of Technology, Sydney Business School.
There he led the construction of the Frank Gehry designed Dr Chau Chak Wing Building, a landmark in architecture and building methods and a new approach internally to higher education.
Roy is Special Innovation Adviser and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Enterprise) at UTS.
He has advised governments both state and federal for decades, as well as carrying out international research for the OECD and the European Commission.
More recently he was instrumental in the success of the Innovative Manufacturing CRC and the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Hub and the Port of Newcastle.
Husic said: “He has been a massive champion of Australian industry, innovation and advanced manufacturing – a believer in our nation’s ability to get things done.
“That’s why I’m thrilled that he’ll be joining the board of our national science agency – helping shape CSIRO’s strategic direction and deepen engagement with Australian industry.”
