Overview

Will future policy leaders provide the direction – and the funding – we need to ensure the next generation of great Australian technologies companies and industries? And what can Australian businesses and research organisations do to develop their own capacity for successful innovation?

At this critical juncture for the innovation community, the Australian Financial Review is pleased to announce our 2020 Innovation Summit will be delivered in a fully virtual format on 7 December 2020.

Join us as we explore the concept of “ambidextrous” organisations and economies, that are able to balance the demands of the present with a vision of the future.

Who will hold that vision for Australia?
