In November 2013 JAG Poly was showcased in the Brisbane City Council "Brisbane Innovation Scorecard"awards. 'Enable Brisbane' describe the event as "...recognising and rewarding leading innovative businesses and individuals whose pioneering work helps to secure the long-term future of Brisbane as an economically prosperous city.
The scorecard is compiled from exclusive research commissioned by Brisbane Marketing in collaboration with UQ Business School, Brisbane City Council, Queensland Government and Enterprise Connect.
It is the only city-based annual innovation benchmarking tool available, and 62 per cent of Brisbane businesses surveyed in the 2012 edition reported introducing “one or more significant innovation” in the past three years.
On the back of such robust innovation uptake among Brisbane industry, the city was featured in the coveted 2thinknow Innovative Cities Index for the first time in 2012/13 and recognised as a city with dominance or influence on key economic and social innovation segments, based on global trends.
Brisbane was found to be in the top 20 per cent of the 445 cities across the globe benchmarked for innovation on the index, claiming 85th place.
Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said being recognised for innovation capability by the 2thinknow Innovative Cities Index was an indication of Brisbane’s commitment to keeping pace with change and technology."
