Building on the success of COP-26 on Mangroves restoration in Glasgow, the next Ocean Innovators® event will take place on Wednesday, July 19th, 2023, in Brisbane from 1pm onwards at the Girraween/Daintree Seminar Room, Ground Floor of EcoSciences Precinct, 41 Boggo Road, Dutton Park (1-3:30pm).

Bringing Scientists, Engineers, and Community leaders together

Supported by the Australian-French Association for Research and Innovation (AFRAN) and the Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group (ESRAG) this workshop will bring together experts and thought leaders to explore the opportunities and challenges of Indo-Pacific governance. We believe in fostering research and innovation cooperation initiatives that promote good governance, cultural exchange, and sustainability in the region.

During the workshop, we will examine the shared interest and responsibility in the Indo-Pacific region, discussing ways to enhance collaboration among Australian, Francophone, and non-francophone parts of this region. We are actively seeking key speakers who wish to contribute their expertise and insights to further support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) linked to our oceans and the biosphere.

The event will bring diverse profile to foster collaboration:

  • Academics & Researchers (CSIRO, University of Queensland, UniSC)

  • French Members from The Australian-French Association for Research and Innovation (AFRAN)

  • Not-For-Profit, ESRAG and Rotary International members
