On Wednesday, 20 August 2014 veski connection members, colleagues and friends had the distinct pleasure of spending an evening with Dr Jonathan Rosen from the College of Engineering, Boston University at the Melbourne Town Hall.

Presented in partnership with veski, City of Melbourne and Melbourne Boston Sister Cities Association (MBSCA), Dr Rosen delivered an engaging lecture on "The Role of Societal Engineers in the Innovation Economy".

His presentation encouraged collaboration between Melbourne and Boston in the life sciences industry and explored our understanding of the traditional roles of engineers and the evolution of the scoietal engineer. With deeper understanding of the challenges facing our society, Dr Rosen proposed that engineers must make a sustained commitment to devise creative, responsible solutions to those challenges. 

Following a presentation peppered with humour and profound insights, veski innovation fellow Professor Kenneth Crozier led a short Q&A session about the role of societal engineers and the shared learnings between Boston and Melbourne.

The conclusion of Dr Rosen's presentation didn't herald the end of the evening; joining him, Dr Lauren Ayton continued the themes of partnership and collaboration as she shared her personal experiences in a presentation entitled, "Strengthening Melbourne-Boston ties: the importance of the sister city relationship".
