Event overview

Recent economic indicators show that Australia’s rapidly changing manufacturing sector is experiencing a strong turnaround and is now growing strongly, and could play an important role in the rebalancing of the national economy.

At this event, we examine the changing landscape, future prospects for growth and priorities for industry development. We ask:

  • What is the vision for manufacturing as part of a high-value jobs and skill base?
  • What makes for successful collaboration between research institutions and industry?
  • What role does government have in supporting future industries and Australia's innovation system?
