Please join us at our event Science: It’s good business for a conversation about how UQ can enable your success through next generation products and your future workforce.

You will hear from industry leaders who have developed innovative new products, including the renowned Dr Andrew Liveris AO.

Discover what it took to translate their ideas from science into successful commercial products and how to partner with UQ to do the same. Discuss the opportunities available to leverage government funding for research and manufacturing, as well as the new entrepreneurial focus in training your future workforce.

I look forward to seeing you there.
