About Collaborate | Innovate | 2017

Collaborate | Innovate provides a fantastic networking opportunity for anyone working within the CRC realm – or indeed any industry-research collaborative endeavour.
Ian Christensen, Excellerate

Each year the Cooperative Research Centres Association (CRCA) holds its annual conference in a different city across the country. The conference is an ideal opportunity for researchers, educators and industry people to network with CRCA members while gaining valuable insights regarding the nature of cooperative research ventures.

In 2017 we are holding the conference in Canberra, again giving us the opportunity to hold our gala dinner for the Awards for Excellence in Innovation in the Great Hall at Parliament House.

The Collaborate | Innovate theme highlights the CRCA conference as the leading conference on business-research collaboration and engagement.  The conference will explore the importance of business and industry working with researchers to create innovation, and how to foster these relationships.

The CRC Association conference attracts upwards of 350 delegates, including some of Australia’s most influential people in government, industry and universities.

We hope you can mark 23–25 May 2017 in your diary now and join us in Canberra for this special event.

Venue: QT Canberra, 1 London Circuit.
