AGIA Conference 2019
The Graphene Enabled Smart Cities conference takes place on 19th November, 2019 in Melbourne.
It explores how graphene will play a crucial part in revolutionising the functionality of buildings and improving productivity in construction, infrastructure, energy and mobility.
Australia is positioned to be a global leader in Smart City technologies. Australian materials science researchers are acknowledged to be among the leaders in graphene research for large scale industrial applications:
International and local speakers will provide insights into the potential of
- Low cost, Large scale sensing for IoT;
- Stronger, light weight concrete produced with a significant reduction in CO2 Low cost;
- Highly efficient water purification enabling ubiquitous potable water, and;
- Energy capture and conservation.
The commercial opportunities for integrating graphene into large scale applications are starting to emerge. Those that are early adopters and integrators will reap the rewards.
About the Conference
The Graphene+ conference is an opportunity for leaders from every part of industry to participate in understanding and guiding the future of technology, innovation and manufacturing in Australia.
The individual sessions all have an overriding theme. “Doing more with less”.
The invited panellists are experts in their fields and each panel has be curated by the moderator to produce an interactive conversation and deliver valuable actionable insights. The intent is not to look over the horizon of technology development, but to get a reality check on what the big influencing factors are that will happen next, and how we can all profit from understanding what impact graphene enabled materials is likely to have…
We live in a time of economic uncertainty, with trade war looming large, technology disruption ever present, and climate change as a constant new normal.
The promise of graphene’s superlative properties is starting to show in products and technologies and it’s no longer a material locked in a lab. Graphene is starting to be part of the strategic planning of some of the largest and most powerful corporations in the world.
Australia is one of the leading economies in graphene research and is in the process of turning that capability into exportable, investable, valuable products and services.
This conference embraces themes ranging from energy efficiency and independence through manufacturing 4.0 to new methods of mobility, to the funding of new industries. This is how the jobs of the future will be created, and this is how we can tackle the challenge of climate change.
The strategic vision is massive, and so are the opportunities for Australia.
