About the event

RMIT University’s College of Business is proud to host its annual Business Research Showcase. Celebrating the College’s excellent research, the 2.5 day schedule features panel discussions which aim to stimulate intellectual discourse and engage an audience of academics, students and industry partners.
The theme in 2019 is Navigating Complexity. Digital transformation, the networked society, social media, the platform economy, globalisation, technological change, and the political upheavals of the last decade mean that we, as citizens, workers and members of our communities, face a complex and uncertain environment.
As well as keynotes from The Hon. Lindsay Tanner and artificial intelligence entrepreneur Dr Catriona Wallace, academics and industry experts will tackle the big issues from the future of unions to the platform economy, blockchain, big data in health and behavioural decision theory. 
The Showcase will also celebrate the research endeavours of our PhD candidates with poster and photography competitions. 
This event has much to offer academics, students and our industry partners alike. To register please click the button below. We look forward to seeing you there!
