Thursday, 9 June 2016, 9am – 5pm

Design is not just a noun: the object or artefact. Design these days has to be recognised as a verb: an approach, a designerly way of thinking that has to become a key driver of Australia’s National Innovation agenda and Queensland’s Advance Queensland initiative. The Queensland Design Policy Summit comprises four panel discussions focussing on Business, Science, Education, and Cities. With a view to inform policy, invited panellists will discuss the role of design in the context of digital disruption, STEM research, creative industries, education, startups and entrepreneurship, smart cities, and innovation.

Registration: $220, includes morning and afternoon tea breaks and lunch
