Event overview

Universities play a critical role in every aspect of Australia's aspiration for improved productivity and competitiveness.

University's responsiveness to new demands, the capacity of the sector to innovate and to influence change in sectors universities supply to, is key to Australia adjusting. It is also key to Queensland's economic development and competitive advantage nationally and globally.

CEDA's major research report Australia Adjusting identified that to remain competitive and economically strong Australia must adjust to: ensure we have a knowledgeable, productive workforce; and focus on industries that will deliver future prosperity.

These Queensland Vice Chancellors are confirmed to come together on the CEDA stage in 2014 to discuss these critical issues and their aspirations for Australia and Queensland's university sector.

Join a senior cross sector audience to hear the Vice Chancellors on how Queensland's universities contribute to the state and federal economies and their insights into the role of higher education in driving economic prosperity.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.
