Innovation Nation: Sustainability
Making a sustainable Australia
Building a truly circular economy where we recover the true value from waste requires partnerships – and beyond, to a new pact between consumers, industries and governments. Science and engineering will be the key to building a successful pact, with many already getting on with the job. The Academy of Technology and Engineering invites you to learn from scientists, engineers, and industry partners that have already made that journey and are building Australia’s circular economy.
Boosting the translation and commercialisation of Australian research has been a hot topic of conversation recently. But for those new to the game, it can be difficult to know how to get started. Where is the ‘in’? In the second of this webinar series, presented by the ATSE Industry and Innovation Forum, we take a peek inside the collaborative relationships of successful Australian innovators (from both the academic and industry sides) and examines what makes a successful, productive collaboration.
Join us at this exciting webinar as we hear from Veena Sahajwalla, Kate Nguyen, Peter Cook and Sophia Hamblin Wang.
This webinar will be moderated by ATSE Industry and Innovation Forum Deputy Chair Dr Tony Peacock. The webinar will run for approximately 60 minutes with each speaker providing a presentation to our online audience followed by a Q&A session with the speakers.
This event is free and open to all.
