Science meets Business

Following a Performance Review of Australian Innovation, Science and Research in 2016, it was found that we are performing well in the creation of knowledge in the science and technology sectors - however, when it comes to applying that knowledge we are lagging behind.

This may be beginning to change, following strong growth in joint university-industry patents, as reported by IP Australia. How can we reinforce and expand on this?

Science meets Business brings together researchers and STEM professionals with leaders in business and industry to do just that. In forming relationships, networking and sharing their work, attendees will be better equipped to translate and apply research more effectively.

Collaborations between research institutes, agencies, businesses and government have also come about from attendance of Science meets Business, as it serves as a catalyst for the movers and shakers in the STEM research sector and in industry.

Details on the next event (held annually) are available on our events page.
