Brisbane 2033: Legacy Project

Brisbane’s Brightest Ideas – how our innovations have gone global.

This event has been rescheduled to 13 October – we look forward to you joining us.

Join us in real life to network with fellow members and hear from our expert panel of successful innovators on Brisbane’s role in commercialising innovation and attracting the research, investment and talent required to be a centre of innovation.

Opening comments by Trevor St Baker AO, Founder and Deputy Chairman of the St Baker Energy Innovation Fund.

Brisbane punches above its weight in innovation industries and commercialising research and design initiatives. Successful innovation ventures say that being based in Brisbane was integral to their success. Come and hear why.

Where is Brisbane placed in the internationally competitive landscape of “innovation cities”? What is the future for innovation research, investment and talent attraction in Brisbane?
