A globalised green economy: addressing changing educational and training needs in France and Australia (1092)

Faced with the new challenges stimulated by the emergence of a globalised green economy, how can the French model inspire Australia in the fields of research and higher education and in motivating students in getting international professional experience? Concrete issues will be discussed through case studies, including a study of the Initiative of Excellence Clusters’ strategies in France and a presentation about the programs developed by the Cooperation in Science and Technology Section at the Embassy of France and by Campus France Australie (the national agency for the promotion of French higher education in Australia). These questions will be discussed in the light of the working relationships between French firms and their Australian partners in the various fields of the green economy.
