Join the future of cyber

23 October 2017

Defence is broadening its partnerships within the Australian innovation community, particularly in the priority areas of the Next Generation Technologies Fund. Cyber security is a key next generation technology, and one which has broader national importance.

DST Group is partnering with Data61 to progress its cyber research and is presently working with more than ten universities with Collaborative Research Projects in the cyber domain.

The national cyber innovation community continues to rapidly evolve, and Defence will be better positioned to leverage that community as the connections between participants are strengthened. You are invited to join colleagues from academia and industry, DST, Data61 and the ACSGN (Australian Cyber Security Growth Network) for a networking workshop, designed to grow and strengthen connections within the cyber innovation community, in particular, those with potential relevance to Defence. Participants such as yourself will each provide 5 minute 'pitches' on their research and development capabilities that might have Defence application, and there will be opportunity to workshop those capability areas where synergies emerge.

This one-day event will be held at the National Wine Centre, Adelaide, South Australia, on Tuesday 28 Nov 2017.
