The program for the second German Science and Innovation Day has now been released. The program will feature eight presentations from five different universities covering a broad spectrum of academic disciplines and German-Australian engagement models. The keynote will be delivered by Australian Laureate Fellow Prof Christopher Barner-Kowollik. We are delighted to feature a presentation by Prof Joybrato Mukherjee, Vice-President of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and Prof Rob Robson, former President of the Australian Association of von Humboldt Fellows as part of the event.
The closing panel will explore the benefits and possible contributions of a ‘German Australian Academic Association (GAAA) and will be chaired by the Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany, Prof Michael Rosemann.
A special element of the day will also be exhibitions from the two German PASCH Schools in Brisbane showcasing how STEM-related content is taught as part of their German curriculum.
