Donnerstag, 10.10.2024 – German-Australian Science and Innovation Day

Brisbane German Week 

German-Australian Science
and Innovation Day

The scientific relationships between Queensland and Germany are on an all time high. Never before have we seen such a frequency and quality of science delegations, depths and impact of university partnerships, and interest in research initiatives supported by Max Planck and Fraunhofer. An entirely new Queensland-Bavaria research alliance demonstrates the mutual commitment to each other.

In light of this motivational moment, we are delighted to include the established and highly popular German-Australian Science and Innovation Day for the 9th time in our annual program.

Hosted for the first time by the University of Southern Queensland, this day is a wonderful sign of collaboration across all major Brisbane-based universities and complementary partners.

Located at the stunning new UniSQ Brisbane Branch, this event will provide contemporary insights and credible, first-hand experiences on a number of significant German-Australian science partnerships including state-based partnerships (Bavaria, Hessen) as well as all the latest from important stakeholders of the
Germany-Queensland scientific ecosystem.

Academy host Rafael Gomez (at the QUT Kelvin Grove Campus).

For the 9th time, we will give senior and junior researchers near and far, incl. students from the two local German Immersion schools (Kenmore SHS, Ferny Grove SHS), representatives from the government and private sector an opportunity to present latest developments and learn from successful engagement models.


These discussions have nurtured a ‘Team Brisbane’ attitude across all research institutions, which was essential in progressing significant agreements in areas such as MedTech and more recently bioeconomy.


We would like to thank The University of Queensland, Griffith University,
University of Southern Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Study Queensland, the German Embassy and DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) for their support!
