June 6th 2016 Laura Bird, Graduate Electro-Acoustics Engineer from Inhabit’s Melbourne office was invited by Engineers Australia to present innovation in engineering and its export potential. 26 engineers were chosen to showcase the innovative projects they are working on at the Engineers Australia Office. Six of engineers, including Laura, were chosen to meet at the Park Hyatt Hotel prior to the visit, to discuss their projects in detail with The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, Australia’s 29th Prime Minister, and The Hon Karen Andrews MP, Assistant Minister for Science.
