How do we get new technology out of the lab into the community, and pull new knowledge out of academic papers and into policy?
And how can we deepen collaborations to drive solutions to the major challenges facing our communities?
These were the questions at the heart of Engaging for Impact 2018, which brought together visionary leaders from around the globe at RMIT to tackle the world’s most critical issues.
Over three days, more than 1200 top researchers and innovators came together with business, government, NGOs and community groups to share insights.
They covered issues ranging from the new industrial revolution to ageing populations, from social networking and the internet of things to our unprecedented urban growth.
