WA Chapter Event: Effective Academic-Industry Partnerships Presentation

Reports over the last few years have identified that the rate of collaboration between industry and academia in Australia is the lowest within the 32 OECD countries. Australia is well known for its high quality science and innovation, but supporting effective partnerships between both sectors is vital to continue to drive growth and success in science and innovation.

This event will focus on how to build effective partnerships between academia and industry. We will hear both industry and academia perspectives from Professor Richard Lipscombe, Managing Director or Proteomics International and Mark Stickells, Director, Innovation and Industry Engagement, UWA, before an engaging panel discussion. Please join us to contribute your thoughts and experience.
