Australian-French Entrepreneurship Challenge 2018

Australian-French Entrepreneurship Challenge 2018

Today’s PhD students are the drivers of tomorrow’s Australian innovation economy

The Australian–French Entrepreneurship Challenge brings together creative minded PhD candidates to brainstorm innovative ideas right through from concept to creation – all in the space of 24 hours. In a bilateral cooperation between France and Australia, the challenge was successfully run in 2016 at the Australian National University, in 2017 in Adelaide with the support of the SA government and of the three major Universities locally.

The third edition of the Australian-French challenge will be hosted at Macquarie University, with the support of the Australian Academy of Science, the French Embassy in Australia, and the Australian and French business communities.
