Inventions of the Century: From Solar Cells to Spray-On Skin

About

In a groundbreaking discussion that spans the breadth of modern innovation, we are privileged to host three luminaries from diverse sectors: healthcare, solar energy, and electric vehicles. Each speaker is emblematic of the drive and ingenuity that has characterised this century's most transformative inventions.

We have a unique opportunity to learn from these founders about their experiences in commercialising their research and building a business in an era when the word startup didn’t exist in Australia. And the story of what that looks now 30 years later.

Join us for a deep dive into the minds behind these game-changing inventions. From the healing power of spray-on skin with a pioneering burns surgeon Prof Fiona Wood, the promise of solar energy with academic and entrepreneur Prof Renate Egan, to the future of green transportation with visionary Founder Slava Kozlovskii, this panel talk is moderated by innovation catalyst George Hedon and promises insights into the innovations that are shaping our world.

WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU IN 2024
