A brief update from the
veski chief executive officer

As we embark on a new financial year I thought I’d touch base with an update on veski activities and those that will shape the coming months…
 
I have recently returned from a trip to Europe spending time at Kennispark, and the University of Twente, Enschede in the Netherlands to understand how working together the ecosystem has made Twente an internationally recognised innovation region. I also had the opportunity to present at The Future of High Tech conference on the Future of Education, a most rewarding experience and reassuring to learn that the challenges we are facing in educating our next generation are shared across the world. 
 
I then dropped into Edinburgh where I spent time with the Interface team; catching up with our 2015 veski resident Dr Siobhán Jordan and many of the Interface stakeholders from across Scottish business and various academic institutions.

Visit veski.org.au next month to read my blog on the outcomes and finer details of these meetings and to discover our plans for rolling out our programs in 2016/17.
