Purpose

The economy and society benefit as the insights that arise within our community become policy and practice, products and services improving people’s lives.

Businesses, small, medium and large, are essential links in the chain and, the relationship between industry and academia is increasingly vital, energetic, involving a daily interchange of people, ideas and knowledge.
