UIIN Australian Symposium

We’re excited to announce a symposium in Melbourne in April 2024, co-hosted by Swinburne University.

The symposium will be an opportunity to spotlight a pioneering university model where industry partnerships are at its foundation, and connect our passionate Australian community.

“Enhancing the impact of education and research at universities can only be done with all parties at the table. This Symposium will serve as a co-creation space to collaboratively build solutions for mutually beneficial partnerships and unlock the full potential of universities,” said Arno Meerman, Chief Executive Officer of UIIN.

“It will offer a valuable platform for our community to discuss some of the key challenges in external engagement and provide practical solutions to universities, SMEs, large industry and government stakeholders alike”.

The symposium came out of a Memorandum of Understanding co-signed at our 2023 Annual Conference in Budapest, Hungary.

We can’t wait to head down under again and reconnect with our Aussie community!
