Unleashing the Regional Power of AUKUS

The AUKUS Forum, in collaboration with Bathurst Regional Council  and the Industry Capability Network – ICN, invites businesses from across the Central West – across all industries – to learn about new opportunities from AUKUS at a workshop on  Monday, 5 February from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm at Charles Sturt University.

The nuclear powered submarine project with AUKUS thrusts Australia into a whole new world where innovation and technology rule.

AUKUS will be much more than nuclear submarines and the opportunities will expand into all industries – The Prime Minister has said that AUKUS will be the largest industrial endeavour in Australia’s history and will require a whole of nation effort. “This whole of nation effort also presents a whole of nation opportunity; for new jobs, new industries, and new expertise in science, technology and cyber.”

AUKUS is already expanding from nuclear with particular emphasis on cyber capabilities, artificial intelligence, quantum technologies and more.

Join us to hear from defence industry leaders, world leading researchers and industry experts as we build a whole new ecosystem to build the AUKUS Partnership.

Speakers include:

  • The Hon Joel Fitzgibbon, former Defence Minister (online)
  • Michael Sharpe (Director AUKUS Forum)
  • LT Colonel Jasmin Diab CSC, Nuclear Engineer
  • Jason Legge, Fujitsu Australia artificial intelligence
