The Australian National University and  University of Canberra launched 
the "Innovation ACT Portal" in Canberra last night: 

This is a social media enhanced web site designed to help students and 
staff at the ANU and University of Canberra to get together to turn 
their research into products and services, with up to $20,000 for a 
business plan. The new web site will be used in the Innovation ACT 
program which teaches innovation and then has a competitive process. The 
ACT Department of Business and Industry Development has funded a new web 

This year I talked to the Innovation ACT participants about "Innovating 
to lower costs and carbon emissions with ICT" 
Next year the Innovation ACT Portal will include a boot camp for new 
entrepreneurs and an "i-Prize" for addressing an important social issue.
