The 2016 Regional Futures Conference, is the first conference of its kind that will specifically address the challenges facing regional Australia and draw attention to the many ways in which universities can work with government, community and industry, to drive innovation, engagement and research, and create vibrant, successful futures for regional economies and communities.

This conference will bring together academics, politicians, and community and industry leaders to focus on Economic, Healthy, Sustainable, Digital and Creative futures. Importantly, it will enable delegates to connect, share their knowledge and establish new collaborative research and engagement partnerships.

If you have an interest in regional Australia, then this conference will provide you with a unique opportunity to share your voice with an engaged audience and establish new networks that have the potential to make a difference to regional futures.

There has never been a more important time to work together, share knowledge, commit to research and highlight the importance of our regions!
