Event overview

After years of policy uncertainty, Australia’s higher education sector is desperately seeking clarity on policy settings that are vital for Australia’s prosperity.

Higher education is more important to Australia’s future than ever before.

Universities drive research, accelerate innovation, and are fundamental towards growing international connections and developing our future workforce.

CEDA NSW convenes the annual Vice-Chancellor’s discussion panel for a critical analysis of the policy issues requiring urgent attention by the incoming Australian Government following the 2016 election. These include:

  • Aligning higher education with the skills needed for the future of work;
  • Priorities for innovation policy and the need for greater levels of commercialisation;
  • Enhancing Australian research credentials and links with industry; and
  • Finding the equitable balance public investment in higher education versus the level of contribution made by students.

Join a senior cross sector audience to hear directly from Vice-Chancellors on higher education reform priorities that address these critical needs.
