Creating value through science

Creating value through science

NSW
Mar 15
CEDA NSW welcomes CSIRO Chief Executive Officer, Dr Larry Marshall to discuss CSIRO’s market vision for Australia’s future and the opportunities CSIRO has pinpointed to transform our major industries with science.

Speakers

Dr Larry Marshall, Chief Executive, CSIRO
Dr Paul D'Urso, Executive Chairman, Anatomics
Michelle Price, Chief Operating Officer, Australian Cyber Security Growth Network

Event overview

In the past, Australia has unleashed our science on the world as ideas, leaving them to realise their potential elsewhere – creating value, jobs and opportunities abroad. This isn’t sustainable.

The CEDA NSW Innovation and disruption series returns to explore the shift needed to refocus our efforts in growing high value industries here in Australia.

Join Dr Larry Marshall as he discusses CSIRO’s market vision for Australia’s future, the opportunities CSIRO has pinpointed to transform our major industries with science, and how it’s already beginning to deliver.

In addition, industry leaders across various sectors will further examine:

  • What is exciting them in their industries and their visions for how their industries will transform the lives of Australians in the future;
  • How research and industry currently work together, and opportunities to enhance partnerships; and
  • The role of science and R&D in shaping Australia’s growth industries.
