Speed Networking for Innovation

February 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Flinders University connects South Australian CEOs with University researchers to discuss how they can work together to create innovative business solutions and make an impact in the South Australian community.

National prosperity depends on having people with the skills, knowledge and expertise necessary to drive innovation and respond to the complexity of global problems and challenges which we all face regardless of where we come from or what constitutes our work.

The tradition of doctoral training only for replenishing academia firmly belongs in the past; in fact many postgraduates gain employment outside of traditional settings. Obtaining a PhD by research is the pinnacle of formal educational achievement and in principle PhD graduates have experienced an unrivalled opportunity to realise, cultivate and unleash their intellectual potential. Anyone achieving this qualification has demonstrated not only their ability to understand and use specific and specialised knowledge requiring the highest intellectual capabilities, they have also demonstrated their ability to go beyond what was already known to create new knowledge, new ways of thinking and potentially new opportunities for humankind.

Imagine what this kind of thinking can do when faced with problems of global networks and complexities.  It is now widely recognised that doctoral graduates make significant contributions to innovation and are equipped with a broad skill set which enables them to do so. In this modern era business, enterprise and industry can all benefit. Imagine what this sort of advantage could bring your business.
