Adjunct Professor Neal Ryan
Dr David Tuffley
From the sheep’s back to the resources boom Australia’s economic drivers are constantly changing. We are now in the information age where data has moved from a backroom process of industry to a commodity in its own right. With the Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland innovation agenda and the Commonwealth Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda, our governments are striving to diversify the economy through science, technology and innovation. However, Australia’s transition to a new knowledge-based economy cannot be achieved by government alone.
Join us for a discussion on how university, industry and governments can work together to strengthen our existing industries and create new opportunities to diversify our economy.
Professor Neal Ryan’s academic and industrial experiences provide a balanced analysis of the contemporary policies on science, technology and innovation and a framework for a national system of innovation to successfully transition to a knowledge-based economy.
Dr. David Tuffley will extend on these themes by investigating the nexus between technology and society and how new technologies work with the society.
