2012 Entrepreneurship Seminar Series

Archived program of the 2012 Seminar Series

After last year's success, we are happy to announce that the CUDOS entrepreneurship seminar series is starting again. CUDOS has a strong commitment to education, training and mentoring for students and staff involved in the centre. CUDOS initiated the entrepreneurship seminar series in 2011 with a view to establish an atmosphere of entrepreneurship and to start researchers and students thinking about real-world implications and applications of their research. Over the next months there will be fortnightly lunchtime seminars given by some of Australia's leading entrepreneurs in optics and photonics. Everyone is welcome to attend, light refreshments will be provided after the seminar with the opportunity for informal discussions. The seminar series is sponsored by CUDOS and the Australian Optical Society. See below for the schedule as well as links to individual announcements and videos of past presentations.
