1:50 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: Building a Sustainable, Innovative and Competitive Future for Australia led by Industry Growth Centre

The global economy is entering “Industry 4.0” where artificial intelligence, machine learning, automatic and digitalisation are disrupting businesses across all industries. To address the concerns of Australia’s future workforce, the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science rolled out 6 Growth Centres to identify our key priority areas. With a focus on industry-led innovation, this panel will delve into the priorities of each growth centre and how they are driving innovation, productivity and competitiveness for Australia’s future.

This panel will focus on the key themes:
  • What emerging technologies and fields are currently being looked into for commercial research?
  • How are we ensuring our research aligns to commercial outcomes and business priorities?
  • Engaging graduates and researchers with relevant skills to ensure smooth transition into the workforce post-study.
