Callaghan Innovation – wishing it all the best……but
By Peter Kerr for sticK 
(sticK  – 25 January 2013 ) I hope I’m wrong about Callaghan Innovation, and for our country’s and industry’s sake that it is a roaring success when it stumbles into life on Feb 1.
But, the portents aren’t good – and as a solution in search of a need, instead of the other way round – we’ll end up with a couple of years of bureaucratic confusion before eventually going for a form of the Advanced Technology Institute as originally proposed by IRL.
In the meantime we’ll have a Callaghan Innovation Agency (CIA), and all the bumbling that’s implied in that.
