Innovation and Science Australia boss Bill Ferris will warn the nation must translate research into commercial outcomes or Australians won't be given the best possible quality of life.

In a speech to the Westmead Research Hub Mr Ferris says Australia needs better collaboration between business and publicly-funded research.

"Better translation of research into commercial outcomes underpins economic growth and global competitiveness," he said on Wednesday.
