Collaboration is one of the key drivers of innovation, providing businesses who collaborate with a distinct advantage over the competition. Businesses collaborating with the research sector gain access to a skilled and industry-ready workforce; the latest knowledge, technology and information; and are more likely to develop new ideas, products and services to take to market.
We will be continuing with this successful event, holding another Business-Research Match-up on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 May as part of the Collaborate | Innovate | 2019 conference.
Researchers – meet the businesses that want your ideas
Businesses – find out what research and development is out there and explore new possibilities
Investors – meet researchers and entrepreneurs looking to do the amazing
Attendees will have the opportunity to book 20-minute meeting time slots with any business, researcher or any conference attendee. Don’t miss the chance to pre-book that important meeting during the conference.
“ The match-up event provided an excellent forum for engaging with the research sector. The format of short, sharp, focused meetings was a great way to communicate the needs of our business and explore potential future collaborations. I would highly recommend attending such future events to any businesses looking for collaborations to solve specific needs or just wanting to develop a network with the research sector.”Dr James Wiltshire, Dow Chemical Australia
If your business is not selected for the free opportunity, you will be notified, and will still be able to attend the Match-up by registering for the conference.
