The Regional Universities Network is pleased to present RUN 21: Regional Universities Build and Sustain Regional Communities.

The 2021 Conference will virtually bring together regional stakeholders and leaders to explore how regional universities can work with government, community and industry to build and sustain strong and vibrant futures for our regional communities.

If you have an interest in regional Australia, this Conference will provide you with a unique opportunity to share your voice with an engaged audience and collaborate with a collective enthusiasm to furthering our regions.
