He has made a substantial contribution to the field of studies of the global knowledge economy, and of its Australian and international ramifications, since 1994. He has also contributed to both the analysis of new technologies and their application in Australia, and to policy and commercial developments related to the commercialisation of such technologies in Australia, over two decades.

From 1987 to the late 1990s he was actively involved, as Chairman or Director, in a number of technology-based companies, many of which he was instrumental in establishing during his time in government. For example, from 1987 to 1993 he was a Director AMRAD Ltd (Australian Medical Research and Development Consortium) a company with a diversified ownership established to commercialise Australian medical research. In 1988 AMRAD entered into a joint venture with Merck, Sharpe and Dohme to establish a 50/50 joint venture, AMRAD Pharmaceuticals. Other examples include his role as founding Chairman of Vistel Ltd (Victorian Government Telecommunications Initiative)(1987-92), of the Australian Computing and Communications Institute (1988-99) and of the Strategic Industry Research Foundation (1988-93).

From August 2003 to August 2017, he was Academic Co-Chair, APEC Life Sciences Innovation Forum (LSIF). The Group is chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand. Dr Fikry Isaac, CMO Wellnes and Prevention, J&J is Industry Co-Chair. The establishment of the Group is an initiative of President Fox of Mexico.
