The neoliberal movement is broad and impacts on the global to local context within in an education system and university research and innovation environment. One unintended consequence of the neoliberal movement and logic which impacts on university life is how it changes research practice and the resulting creativity and innovation. This lecture explores how the movement of neoliberal logic organises the grassroots, micro or local university level of research practice which, in turn, changes the ways of being and knowing in the lives of university and academic actors and their institutions.
