TOPIC: SIGNIFICANT PARTNERSHIP MODELS
The Australian-German Science and Innovation Day is one of the most popular days of
Brisbane German Week with attendees from across the globe, and will already take place for the eighth time this year demonstrating its popularity and widely appreciated impact.
Located at the stunning UQ Customs House, this event will provide contemporary insights and credible, first-hand experiences on a number of significant German-Australian science partnerships including an update regarding the new Bavarian-Queensland partnership, the Hessen-Queensland collaboration as well as all the latest in terms from all the important stakeholders of the German-Queensland scientific ecosystem.

For the eighth 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) as well as representatives from the government and the 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 or more recently bioeconomy.
We would like to thank The University of Queensland, Griffith University,
University of Southern Queensland, Study Queensland, the German Embassy
and DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) for their financial support!
