The SA Branch of the Australian Water Association is pleased to announce the first event in a potential series of events that brings the industry and universities together. The Industry & Academia looks to showcase universities in Adelaide and this is a critical partnership in meeting the requirements of the water industry which is always challenging, dynamic and evolving.

This partnership provides opportunities for R&D, project support, work experience, mentoring and graduate recruitment. 

Flinders University will be the host for this first event and will provide businesses the opportunity to understand what they have to offer to support their business, how they develop students to meet business requirements and to provide them with the opportunity to give feedback on future needs and to connect with potential future employees.
