Overview

After a sustained period of economic prosperity, Australia is facing some tough challenges. Slowing growth, declining real wages, falling productivity and end of the mining boom to name a few. Technology is changing the way we live, work and play and shaping major trends in globalisation, automation, collaboration and the way businesses operate. Australia needs to foster a nation of innovation to ensure our businesses and economy prosper. To ensure that young Australians are equipped and prepared for the jobs of tomorrow, 75% of which will require STEM skills, we need a renewed national focus on STEM education.

Akolade's Future-Proofing STEM Industries Summit is about improving partnerships between industry and education to drive engagement in STEM across the board. Bringing together Australia's most influential thought-leaders, this is your opportunity to hear about the best case studies, learn the best practices, and achieve the best outcomes. We’re creating a platform of proactive discussion about how Australian Universities and Schools can harness relationships with industry to inspire, attract and retain our next generation of STEM-skilled innovators.
