Engaging with Industry

Independent of your area of research, and independent of your future career plans, engaging and collaborating with others outside of the academic environment will form part of your future working life

Engaging with Inductry. CaRST Credit 2 hours. D: Engagement, Influence and Impact.

Particularly since the National Science and Innovation Agenda and the introduction of the ERA Engagement and Impact assessment, the importance of engagement has become more and more visible. While the Universities and businesses establish frameworks and structures to enable such engagement to happen, in the end it is up to the individuals to engage, to collaborate, to make it happen. This hands-on workshop will provide a vital framework and starting point for becoming industry confident, as we address questions regarding how to find partners, how to initiate partnerships, how to manage expectations and how to develop long-term strategic partnerships for continued success in this area.
