Course Content

This panel will discuss how the combined resources from Academia & Industry have a multiplier effect, allowing new tech to be applied to benefit society, providing a well-prepared workforce. The session will explore how Academia leads in responsibility for preparing the next generation of researchers and professionals with the essential skills to advance industry and society, but highlighting that without industry, academia cannot have the real-world experience needed to remain at the cutting edge of the societal requirements. Academia provides an environment with the freedom to explore and innovate, while industry brings the resources and financial stability needed to sustain long-term research projects. This panel will tackle how Academia-industry relationship is mutually beneficial and essential.
