In May, we hosted a Partner Up Queensland event in Townsville to discuss collaboration opportunities between researchers and industry.
Sixty-one guests engaged in discussions about careers, mentoring and professional development opportunities.
Delivered in partnership with James Cook University, the event included a presentation from the Queensland Chief Scientist, Professor Hugh Possingham. He spoke about his considerable success in raising research investment from varied industries, noting challenges he faced and how these were overcome. His presentation provided inspiration and ideas for the researchers and potential industry partners in attendance.
Cubic Defence Australia delivered a presentation about their collaboration with James Cook University that resulted in successful defence solutions.
