Speaker Series Launched

Research Australia is proud to announce the launch of our inaugural Speaker Series events, with the first event to take place on May 17 at the Parliament of NSW.

Research Australia’s Speaker Series events will be free for our members to attend, and will bring together sector leaders in panel-style discussions over breakfast or lunch at venues across major cities around Australia as they discuss the most critical issues facing the Australian health and medical sector and its consumers today. The events create new opportunities to talk about the bold ideas that will drive change in Australian health care and health technology, and enable the whole of the research pipeline to participate and create a deeper understanding of the role each part of that sector plays in the pipeline.
