A Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia)

Collaborative solutions bring together ideas from diverse disciplines and sectors, with teams that include people from different career stages and experience levels to enable innovation.

Australia is facing intractable challenges that put its environmental, economic and social future at risk. Innovative solutions that seek to address these challenges are expected to come from collaborations that break free from restrictive boundaries.

Emerging researchers working to solve these challenges often encounter boundaries that are specific to discipline, sector, career stage or age—limiting the reach and impact of their work. By creating opportunities for researchers to build collaborations across these boundaries, we open the door to possible breakthroughs that can help secure Australia’s future.

The Collaboration across Boundaries 2018 Conference, supported by the Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia), will create a space where researchers from diverse disciplines and sectors can meet and explore opportunities and collaborations that can further their ideas.

About the event

The Collaboration across Boundaries 2018 Conference will be held on Tuesday 4 December at University House, Australian National University, Canberra. This one-day event brings together researchers from ALL disciplines to showcase their ideas or projects at the pitch and poster presentation sessions under the motto: ‘Choose your problem—show us your collaborative solution’. Selected pitches and posters go in the running to win one of two $3,000 research grants (one for each category). The event will also present insightful discussions on how collaborations can change Australia’s future.  

Conference registration is free and open to researchers and representatives from universities, government and the private sector. Postgraduate and research students are also welcome to attend. 

Skills development workshop

The conference will be preceded by a on Tuesday 20 November.  Registered delegates interested in learning more about the skills required to effectively collaborate with external stakeholders are invited to apply to attend.
