National Innovation Policy Forum

The National Innovation Policy Forum will bring together those who lead industry-research collaboration and translation in Australia with policy makers and parliamentarians to tackle common challenges.

We are delighted to have Mr David Thodey AO as Forum Patron.

The forum will be opened by Minister for Industry and Science, Hon Ed Husic MP.

The highlight of the Forum will be the 2022 Ralph Slatyer Address on Science and Society delivered by Professor Tom Calma AC.

It will be a highly participative event, with three stellar panels and a Secretaries and Policy Makers panel, aimed at provoking debate and discussion amongst delegates.

The discussions will be captured by scribes to produce a forum report and next steps. It will be held under Chatham House rules.   


Key Themes
