The history of the forum

    The inaugural China - Australia Science, Technology, Commercialisation and Innovation Forum was held in two sessions; Brisbane, Queensland 27 – 30 November 2016 and Perth, Western Australia 2 – 6 February 2017 respectively.

    The Brisbane session was initiated and organised by the Queensland Chinese Association of Scientists and Engineers (QCASE) under the framework of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Queensland Government and Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China on science and technology cooperation. Nearly 300 representatives and experts from Chinese and Australian governments, enterprises and scientific institutions attended the Forum. The Hon Leeanne Enoch MP, Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy and Minister for Small Business, Queensland Government, and Dr Yongzhen Zhao, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Brisbane, attended the Forum and delivered welcome speeches. Fourteen Chinese and Australian academicians delivered a series of keynote speeches, including Prof Tieniu Tan, Academician and Vice President of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Prof Ian Frazer AC, Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, and recipient of Australian of the Year in 2006 and the Prime Ministers Prize for Science in 2008. Senior representatives of large enterprises such as Huawei Group and Rio Tinto delivered important speeches on technology innovation and China-Australia cooperation.

    The Perth session was organised by the Western Australian Chinese Scientists Association, co-organized by Curtin University, University of Western Australia and Murdoch University, and supported by the Beijing University of Technology, Chongqing University, Hebei University of Technology, Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Curtin Business School, the Government of Western Australia, Perth City Council and Tianqi Lithium. Nearly 250 experts and scholars from China and Australia attended.

    The Forum in Brisbane and Perth achieved significant results with a number of cooperation agreements signed and cooperative intentions agreed. The Forum was reported by important media, including CCTV Channel 4, Phoenix TV, People's Daily and People's Daily Online.
