Description

Join Professor Alex Zelinsky AO, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Newcastle, for 2019’s final New Professors Talk!

How can great ideas, when transformed into reality, positively impact on our lives and change the world?

It is easy to become enamoured with the technology that we have created and ignore the realities of the external world. Without an understanding of the intersection of how people, technology, and business can come together - many innovations are doomed to failure.

In this lecture, Professor Zelinsky will reflect on the lessons learned in innovation in a career that spans leadership in industry, government and now the university sector. He will draw upon examples of technology successes and failures during his career. Professor Zelinsky will outline the drivers of innovation success and argue that a big vision is needed to tackle the important problems that we face as a nation. A bold vision is of no value unless it is implemented. It is vital to quickly move towards realising the dream in a measured way drawing upon the capabilities of collaborators.
