About this Event

Hosted by the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering, this event celebrates the close of the inaugural Queensland Regional Pilot of the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS).

The IMNIS QLD Regional Pilot connects future STEM leaders in Cairns, Townsville and Rockhampton with local networks and industry leaders around Australia. We have industry leaders from Townsville, Rockhampton, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth mentoring PhD students from James Cook University and Central Queensland University. The goal is to increase their understanding of industry and the broader STEM sector, foster industry engagement and collaboration, share career opportunities and connect participants with a broad professional network beyond academia.

Keynote Speaker, Andrew Bowskill, Director, Stakeholder Engagement Queensland at MTPConnect, will share the industry growth centre's role in stimulating the medical technologies, biotechnologies and pharmaceuticals sector to achieve greater commercialisation and in establishing Australia as an Asia-Pacific hub for medtech-pharma companies. Andrew will also outline the goals of the Researcher Exchange and Development within Industry (REDI) program, recently awarded to MTPConnect via the Medical Research Future Fund. IMNIS is excited to be a REDI Partner on this program.

IMNIS mentor Dr Carrie Hillyard AM FTSE and her mentee Zain Akram will also share their leadership and mentoring journeys and experiences as part of the national MedTech-Pharma program in Brisbane.

Industry professionals, PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, University faculty and staff are all invited to join this morning tea event. The James Cook University Townsville campus map is available here. If you are located in Cairns or Rockhampton, join this event here. IMNIS Executive Director, Dr Marguerite Evans-Galea AM looks forward to welcoming all.
