Melbourne Connect Online Events Program Launched
10 June 2020
The 2020 Melbourne Connect Activation Program picks up from the momentum established in last year’s program launch to deliver a rich and collaborative events stream, designed to continue fostering a dialogue between academia and industry.
Curation of the program draws inspiration from current and relevant societal themes, trends and conversations. In a nod to the activation program which will be in full effect when Melbourne Connect opens its doors to the wider public in early 2021, the program allows the ability to curate participants who are pioneers in their respective field both locally and globally.
With our recent shift to online-only programming in 2020 as a swift response to in-person events being put on hold for a public health and safety focus, we are embracing the opportunity to engage in some truly progressive conversations relating to the way that humans and technology interact, the way that industries adapt and change and the way that pioneering research can be applied to commercial and public facing applications.
As we continue to discuss topics such as artificial intelligence influenced decision making, the advancement of material creation, economic outcomes courtesy of creative technology and more – our 2020 Activation Program has the depth and breadth to connect the most eclectic yet complementary group of thinkers, researchers, innovators, learners and problem solvers.

As we become accustomed to digital events in 2020 and realise the new opportunities afforded to us in terms of access to diverse voices, we also begin to appreciate more and more how important and powerful it is to gather in-person to hear from inspirational thought-leaders while establishing truly important connections.
See you in Melbourne Connect in 2021, we can’t wait to have you join us.
