WA – Engaging with Industry
May 22, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
Perhaps you have a bold idea, some exciting data, or a prototype to optimise and license – and you want to engage with industry. To translate your research to knowledge, practice, policy or product, you need to know how to pitch the benefits and impact of your research clearly to a wide range of audiences, and what it is exactly potential industry partners need to know. Our speakers will share key advice in developing strategies to increase engagement and collaborations between industry and academia.
As part of the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) you can connect with some dynamic individuals at this event – Engaging with Industry.
Executive Officer of Accelerating Australia, Dr Maud Eijkenboom will lead our esteemed panellists in a discussion about fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration. Discussion will focus on how, when and why to engage with industry, the importance of understanding commercialisation, milestones, timelines and budgets, developing strong professional connections beyond academia, as well as how developing an entrepreneurial mindset can facilitate resilience and success in any setting. Dr Eijkenboom will also ask the panel how we can foster stronger collaborations between industry and academia and what is the best strategy for success.
