Event overview

Western Australia has attracted attention worldwide in recent years due to the ground-breaking Square Kilometre Array project, advanced medical research and floating LNG technology, to name a few. These projects could provide the impetus for WA to build on its already strong foundation in science, resources, education and technology to establish itself as a global leader. However, key areas such as culture, infrastructure and skills still require focus before we can reach our full potential.

This CEDA event will address questions including:

  • Are our political and corporate leaders up to the challenge of addressing WA's weaknesses to turn our State into a global innovation leader?
  • What is the best pathway to reaching this goal by 2030?
