A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Desert Knowledge Australia (DKA) and Charles Darwin University (CDU) aims to strengthen research and encourage a culture of innovation in Central Australia.
The MOU co-signed this week by CDU’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Bowman and DKA CEO Jimmy Cocking, will foster a partnership between the two organisations through collaborative opportunities that will strengthen research, education, and innovation in the region.
Professor Bowman said the agreement will help build a foundation of collaborative partnerships in the region which will advance education and research opportunities in Central Australia.
““This partnership will help form a strong bond between our two organisations and other like-minded organisations in Central Australia” he said.
“At CDU we are committed to understanding the needs of the region and to develop strategically in ways that boost local success.”
This alliance will focus on innovation and research that will improve the sustainability and liveability of communities in the Northern Territory.
Mr Cocking said this partnership will help define pathways where desert knowledge and western education can walk together.
“We’re leveraging over 70 years of combined knowledge and experience of both organisations to drive the desert forward in education, employment, and research, and to collaboratively deliver the solutions most-needed in remote communities,” Mr Cocking said.
