The Australian Defence Magazine is proud to announce its newest addition to the already thriving ADM Conference series. After the success of ADM Congress 2017, ADM Defence Estate & Base Services Summit and ADM Northern Australia Defence Summit, we have added a fourth event, ADM STEM in Defence Summit

The STEM in Defence Summit will focus on the overwhelming need for Defence to encourage, harness and progress its relationship with the Education sector. Specifically, the emergence of STEM education as an essential industry in the future is of utmost importance.

The overlap between STEM and Defence is obvious. From the development of vehicles and weaponry to the construction and maintenance of key defence infrastructure, STEM is a natural fit for Defence; it is imperative that the industry identifies this and supports the potential of young people within education.

For this reason, ADM will be collating key thought-leaders and practitioners from the DoD, industry and Education to understand the need for a national STEM policy in Defence, the current pathways from education into both the department of Defence and Defence industry, how industry are utilising their connections and cultivating new relationships with Australia’s most prevalent educational institutions and how proactive attitudes now will elevate Australia’s standing as a global player in both Education and Defence.

This event is the first of its kind in the country and will be imperative for all members of Defence, Defence Industry and Education sectors.
