AUSTRALIA CHAPTER MEETING
We are pleased to invite our Australian and New Zealand community to join us for an inspiring panel discussion and networking session on the theme: “PhDs & Industry: Engagement pathways driving innovation and careers”
External engagement is becoming increasingly important in higher education as a means to drive innovation and employability. Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students are central to this, as they play a critical part in our research landscape. More importantly, they will be our future leaders, not only in academia but in industry and government given the diverse roles we expect them to take on in the future. In addition to preparing our HDR students for diverse roles and opportunities across all sectors, how can we also train and inspire them to become the connectors of universities and external partners in the future, for the benefit of all parties involved?
Join us in this discussion with university and industry professionals who are actively providing industry engagement opportunities for HDR students, whether through institution-wide, interdisciplinary programs or multi-university collaborations. Learn from their experiences and challenges and share your ideas and insights in the networking event directly after the panel discussion.
