                            Through engagement, we build bridges between
                            academics, businesses and researchers. We learn
                            from each other through sharing knowledge, expertise
                            and skills. These associations are essential for
                            knowledge transfer as they link user needs, long-term
                            research and a clear direction to research outcomes.
                            UOW is growing the Illawarra’s innovation ecosystem and pursuing the uptake of disruptive
                            technologies that deliver positive economic impacts. The link between community, business
                            and university is more important than ever as we continue to anticipate the nature of emergent
                            industries and future jobs.
