More a way of life than an activity, innovation at Minderoo is about the relentless pursuit of new ideas and new technology, not for their own sake, but for the contribution they can make to delivering a better world. Innovative ideas can help drive greater equality, stronger environmental protection, better health outcomes and a myriad of other things. Innovation is also critical to achieving research outcomes on complex social issues at scale and with speed.
Forrest scholars and fellows consider solutions for social, environmental and scientific challenges. We’re aiming to develop a new free-thinking research community.

Research and Innovation
We are working to build strong partnerships between the Minderoo Foundation and key research and innovation partners, such as think tanks, universities and academics. We are also helping to develop new research on critical areas of impact that are important to
We believe the first step to tackling major challenges is understanding the size and scope of the problem, along with any key drivers of that problem. Evidence is critical to everything we do at Minderoo, from measuring modern slavery to tracking global fishing practices.
Research and innovation are also critical to finding new solutions to problems that have remained unsolved over time. Research informs our strategy development, decision making and advocacy.
