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

Australian PhD students are future innovators, using their ideas to drive successful entrepreneurial endeavours. Teaching today’s PhD students key entrepreneurial skills will equip tomorrow’s business leaders with the ability and skills to boost the global competitiveness of Australian research and industry.

The Australian–French Entrepreneurship Challenge is based on the ‘24 hours for Entrepreneurship’ challenge, a flagship event that has been run in France since 2011 by the French National Association for Research and Technology and Novancia Business School.
