Research Opportunities as DCNS Innovation Seminar


To all researchers working in any technologies they believe applicable to submarine, surface vessel or maritime focused activities this is a reminder that registrations will soon close and places are filling fast for DCNS’ Innovation Seminar in Melbourne on Thursday 4th February 2016. (For information regarding DCNS visit )  This message is being sent out to confirm arrangements for the Melbourne seminar, provide registration opportunities and establish an online ‘Community’ where ideas and plans can be shared. We apologise if you have already received this information from other sources.

This will be the first in a series to be held across Australia over the coming months and you can register your interest in similar events in those locations below.  Note that these seminars are not designed to be short term business opportunities nor a forum focused on introducing your own product or service; rather the opportunity for you and your organisation to gain an understanding of the emerging opportunities and contribute to the long-term (strategic) environment in which your organisation will need to operate

Arrangements for Melbourne
Innovation Seminar:  09.00 – 15.00 Thursday 4 February 2016:  Level 5, 121 Exhibition Street, Melbourne Vic 2000.  Register by clicking here.  Networking and coffee from 08:00.

Please note that this is a Victorian Government building and that security procedures may take some time.  Ensure you bring photographic ID with you.

Subsequent Seminars
Plans for subsequent seminars are being refined but your registration of interest (click here) will certainly assist in refining the schedule.  Each seminar will build on the previous one to ensure we construct the most appropriate framework for the Innovation Environment.

Ideas Community
DCNS does not hold a mortgage on innovation and smart ideas and are establishing a site for idea management where they can start this community of interest.  On that site, you will be able to contribute ideas, comment on threads that have already been started, pose questions and receive updates to agendas for seminars.  It is envisage that the agenda for these seminars will be influenced by these threads.  The site is in the course of final development and we will contact you again once it is ready.
