The 2018 Australian-German Science and Innovation Day is one of the highlights presented during Brisbane German Week.
In 2018, the focus of the event will be on ‘Economy and Science 4.0’, i.e. we will investigate how principles, technologies and insights from Industry 4.0 can be deployed to other sectors (e.g., Health 4.0). A representative from an industry partner will set the scene in terms of linking innovation, research and development and a panel discussion with the most relevant funding organisations will explore emerging opportunities to support and scale Australian-German collaborations.
This event will showcase scientific collaborations between Australian and German universities, and present the objectives, progress and outcomes of current research projects covering a variety of scientific disciplines. It will also provide first hand insights into the support available by organisations such as DAAD, Humboldt Foundation or GOstralia!.
Hosted at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and jointly organised with The University of Queensland (UQ) and University of Southern Queensland (USQ), German academics from various Australian universities will present their latest findings and elaborate on their collaborative experiences with their German partners.
German exchange students as well as students studying German are encouraged to attend this event for the opportunity to broaden their university experience and to make new valuable contacts.
