The 2015 ANFF Research Showcase, ANFF – the home of tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, will be held on 25 and 26 November 2015 at the Brisbane Convention Centre.
The event is the annual gathering for ANFF staff and users from across the organisation to get together, exchange information and explore collaborative opportunities. This year the focus is on the innovative research carried out in the facilities and ANFF’s role in supporting entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs play a key role in a country’s economy and must be equipped with the skills to take new ideas to market. ANFF fosters entrepreneurship by training researchers in the micro and nano-fabrication skills necessary to prototype devices and advanced materials.
ANFF enables users to investigate and develop new ideas that have longer term implications, and also provides the facility to take publicly funded research along the pathway to creating commercial outcomes that will ensure the competitiveness of the Australian economy into the future.
The 2015 ANFF Research Showcase seeks to contribute to building researcher-to-business linkages and encourage greater mobility between the two sectors.
