2015 is the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Cooperative Research Centres Program. To celebrate this important milestone the CRC Association is holding the 2015 conference in Canberra. The highlight of the event will be a one-day forum held at Parliament House, themed Australia 2040. The forum will look 25 years back at the achievements of Cooperative Research Centres and 25 years into the future, examining the challenges and opportunities for Australia in the next quarter century.

In the evening we will celebrate further with a Showcase of CRC outcomes, followed by the Excellence in Innovation Awards dinner in the Great Hall at Parliament House.

The conference will also include a special welcome function at The Australian War Memorial, including the Ralph Slatyer Address on Science and Society and Showcasing Early Career Researchers.

There will also be workshops focused on common interests relevant to particular roles and responsibilities in CRCs, to be held the day after the forum.
