Unleashing the Power of AUKUS - April Session

The AUKUS Forum, in collaboration with UTS, invites you to join their forum to learn about new opportunities from AUKUS

AUKUS Forum event

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 infrastructure and energy too.

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

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

Collaboration will help unleash the power of AUKUS - Join us.
