Future Leaders Program

The Future Leaders Program will be held on Wednesday 27 May 2020, at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, as part of the 17th Asia Pacific Forum on Intelligent Transport Systems.

This unmissable event aims to unite tertiary students from across the Asia Pacific region, expanding their knowledge of the intelligent transport field and learn of the exciting developments on the horizon! Students will have the opportunity to form new (and strengthen existing) connections with their peers whilst expanding their professional networks through joint catering breaks with forum delegates and industry sponsors and exhibitors.

Due to unprecedented demand The Future Leaders Program is now open to both recent graduates under 30 years old & students – providing a platform to showcase their innovative ideas and research that aims to solve real ITS problems.

Program sessions will incorporate student presentations, industry perspectives and mentorship, with the day ending in a ‘Shark Tank’ pitch session where selected students will pitch their research and receive feedback from an expert panel.

We strongly encourage all applicants to watch the video on how to create an engaging and informative poster.

All successful applicants will receive complimentary access to the Future Leaders stream and exhibition at the ITS Asia Pacific Forum 2020, and will be able to register for the full conference at the discounted speaker rate.
