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.
