The Global Business Innovation Enabling Capability Platform

Leading and harnessing research-driven change to
unlock the value and impact of innovation within Australia and worldwide.


RMIT’s Global Business Innovation Enabling Capability Platform (GBI ECP) delivers impactful research aimed at increasing the innovation capabilities of private and public sector firms, through a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach with external stakeholders, combining excellence and relevance, and promoting RMIT as an innovation hub.

Research at RMIT aims to solve critical global problems and to deliver significant economic, social and environmental impact.

Unlike conventional discipline-based research structures, the Enabling Capability Platforms connect researchers from multiple disciplines and from across Colleges under a thematic umbrella.

An Enabling Capability Platform is defined by its people, infrastructure, relationships (internal and external), and subject matter expertise.

This allows RMIT to deploy its areas of excellence and strength to comprehensively address critical local, national, regional and global challenges and to nimbly capture emerging opportunities.

The Enabling Capability Platforms will be a major conduit through which breadth and depth is developed in areas of strength resulting in RMIT becoming more widely recognised for its research relevance beyond the academic world.

This Platform brings together inter-disciplinary and applied researchers to address themes connecting governance, networks, technologies, design, culture, people and performance. It includes a specific focus on innovation, value creation, and sustainability from both market and socio-political perspectives. The goal of Global Business Innovation is to promote excellence across the diverse fields of business research as well as to use this expertise in the process of knowledge transfer for the benefit of the economy, society, and the public sector. This Platform comprises global logistics and supply chain management; entrepreneurship and innovation; governance, accountability, and the law; markets, culture, and behaviour; and people, organisations, and performance.
