Our Knowledge City

Join tertiary leaders in conversation with Lord Mayor Sally Capp to consider the future of Melbourne as a knowledge city.

Is knowledge more important for Melbourne's future than sport, retail or hospitality?

Melbourne's universities are the lifeblood of our thriving knowledge sector, playing a crucial part in the growth and retention of priority business sectors and helping maintain Melbourne's high level of human capital. And yet, we rarely hear from university leadership in a collective, independent forum.

As Melbourne returns to a collaborative, city-based learning culture, what opportunities are universities leveraging as we globally transition towards a knowledge-based economy?

In 2022, narrm ngarrgu | MKW will bring together leaders from the city's universities in an entertaining, thought-inspiring conversation with Lord Mayor Sally Capp to consider the future of Melbourne as a knowledge city. Speakers include:

  • Professor Iain Martin, Vice Chancellor, Deakin University
  • Professor Wendy Cross, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Federation University
  • Professor John Dewar, Vice Chancellor, La Trobe University
  • Professor Alec Cameron, Vice Chancellor, RMIT University
  • Professor Pascale Genevieve Quester, Vice Chancellor, Swinburne University of Technology
  • Professor Adam Shoemaker, Vice Chancellor, Victoria University¬†

Following the panel discussion, attendees are invited to enjoy refreshments and networking opportunities.
