The University of Queensland (UQ) Service Innovation Alliance (SIA) is delighted to host our annual Roundtable Summit on Wednesday 9 November at Customs House.

This event is a wonderful opportunity to connect and engage in meaningful discussion and help direct future work designed to address key challenges.

This year's topic is 'Digital Service Transformation: Future Trends and Opportunities'.

The morning will commence with a light breakfast followed by short presentations by two international experts, Professor Tor Andreassen from the Norwegian School of Economics and Professor Paul Maglio from the University of California.
