Happy New Year..! We hope you have all had an enjoyable holiday season.

Codex and Swinburne are proud to announce that the World’s Top 50 Innovators 2021 will take place at the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne from 14th to 16th October 2021. It will be the first time this prestigious event has been staged outside of London. The World’s Top 50 Innovators series is famous for attracting scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and visionaries who are moving the world forward with the power of their ideas and technologies. Many previous speakers have built multi-billion dollar businesses which are challenging the status quo and transforming our lives, whilst creating new jobs and wealth. Since the start of the pandemic, no less than five alumnae, have applied their technology to this crisis, including Dr Ugur Sahin, CEO, BioNTech, who created the world-first mRNA coronavirus vaccine.

Speakers will be invited to give a Codex Talk

A Codex Talk is a concise presentation, lasting 15 minutes (or less), in which the speaker addresses a provocative question and ends with a bold prediction for the future.

Codex Talks are engaging, entertaining and elucidating. They give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.

The success of the World’s Top 50 Innovators in 2017 and 2019 is captured in testimonial videos:
