Industry Engagement Workshop

Sarah Verdon and I were in Wagga Wagga again this week at an Industry Engagement Workshop run by Greg Spinks from Consulting and Implementation Services. The workshop aimed to support researchers to find ways to collaborate with industry (associations, companies, philanthropists, etc.) to find solutions to real world problems. We had a group task to pitch a research idea to a fictitious industry panel, and our idea about supporting bilingual children to maintain their home languages won (the competition was very tight).
The winning team: Sharynne, Lena Danaia, Sarah Verdon, Belinda Paulovich, Damian Candusso, (Chris Orchard)
