The event was an initiative of Industry Capability Network (ICN) in conjuction with HunterNet, AI Group and Hunter Business Chamber.

NI's relationship with ICN and local industry bodies made The University of Newcastle an ideal venue for the briefing, with an expected response of 100 attendees. The final number of registrations climbed to over expected 250 guests (thankfully NI had booked the Richardson Wing lecture theatre which holds up to 440). As you will see in the image above, the lecture theatre was basically filled to capacity with final numbers close to 300!

NI capitalised on the opportunity of such a large industry cohort on campus and organised for a laboratory tour to be held after the AGL briefing. The lab tour was of The University of Newcastle's Global Innovative Centre for Advanced Nonomaterials hosted by Center Chair Professor Ajayan Vinu. The tour attracted 35 attendees from industy and government.
