I was referring to "Innovation ACT", not "ATP".
Innovation ACT was started by engineering students at ANU and recieves
modest funding from the ACT government to teach innovation to students
at ANU and University of Canberra: http://www.innovationact.org/
By "ATP" you appear to be referring to "ATP Innovations", a business
incubator in Sydney: http://atp-innovations.com.au/about
ATP Innovations is based at the Australian Technology Park, at the old
Eveleigh Railway Workshops. I wrote about ATP and innovation in 1998
(but ATP has more than just the business incubator):

For 2011, Innovation ACT's first speaker was Glenn N Dickins, an ANU
graduate best known for developing "Dolby Headphone Technology":

I suggest we need PhDs trained to be able to talk to the MBA types. We
need scientific and engineering people who can talk business language.
