28 FEB - 4 MARCH
This event offers an unrivalled program of bespoke training to forge deeper connections between federal Parliamentarians and those working in science and technology.
It plays crucial role to build relationships to bring STEM expertise even more deeply into the service
of the nation. It does so by giving STEM experts a deeper understanding of how to engage effectively with policymakers. And it helps policymakers
to connect with key experts in science and technology.
In 2022, Science & Technology Australia has built another ambitious program to extend this impact even further.
Our national gathering of up to 450 STEM leaders will include expert-led professional development, a welcome reception, a Parliamentary forum, national gala dinner, a televised National Press Club address, and opportunities for delegates to meet in small groups privately with Parliamentarians.
Amid the uncertainties of COVID-19, we will stage our program in two parts in 2022.
The conference and training will be delivered online from February 28 to March 4. An in-person National Press Club address by STA President Professor Mark Hutchinson is planned for March 2 in Canberra.
The national gala dinner to bring together STEM leaders and Parliamentarians is planned to be held concurrently in capital cities across Australia on Thursday June 2 - joined by a live AV feed.
