Australian researchers and businesses know they can't afford to wait for better engagement and collaboration to evolve naturally - we need to work to push the boundaries and achieve better connections ourselves.

Some exciting new models are starting to emerge as the global innovation and knowledge economy booms - and we want to help you make the most of it.

Science meets Business 2017 features a vibrant new approach to facilitating STEM/industry collaboration, showcasing new success stories and breaking down barriers between science and business.

Speakers will include:

  • Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science Senator the Hon. Arthur Sinodinos;
  • University of Technology Sydney Chancellor, Dr Catherine Livingstone;
  • An international leader from General Electric with the global perspective on innovation; and
  • Brilliant start-up success stories from drone queen Dr Catherine Ball, Stormseal creator Matt Lennox, carbon technology entrepreneur Marcus Dawe.

You will be equipped with the tools to reach out and take advantage of opportunities to grow meaningful connections with high profile, leading-edge innovators and business pioneers from across the country.

Join us to expand your reach, share your story, and work towards a strong economic future and better outcomes for science and technology in Australia.

Why should you attend?

Whether it’s using tiny planes in high-tech agriculture, initiating a paradigm shift in responding to cyclones, or building a new style of partnership between universities and international corporations to solve health and welfare issues across the globe - the intersection between business, science and technology is making a profound difference to our health, economy, and the ways in which we interact with our environment.

Now in its third year, Science meets Business brings national and international corporate leaders and entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and angel investors together with Australian pioneers in research and commercialisation who are working to make Australia a leader in the translation and application of its knowledge. With a strong cast of delegates who are keen to work together to push Australia’s great R&D towards commercial success, Science meets Business 2017 presents a unique learning and networking opportunity, and might just lead to a bold new venture of your own.
