Welcome Prospective Sponsor

On behalf of the University of Sydney and its Integrated Sustainability Analysis team, I would like to welcome you to the 18th International Conference on Input-Output Economics to be held in Sydney in June 2010. The theme of this conference will be “Economic growth for sustainability and wellbeing”.

We would like to invite you to become involved in presenting this conference to a young, international audience. There are significant benefits to your organisation in partnering with the University of Sydney in supporting this important event.

The 18th International Input-Output Conference is an annual event of the International Input-Output Association, which brings together researchers and practitioners of input-output analysis from all continents. Founded in the work of Nobel Prize laureates Wassily Leontief and Richard Stone, the input-output discipline initially covered industrial interaction, economic growth and labour markets. Recent history is inspired more and more researchers to work towards integrating sustainability and wellbeing issues into economic thinking. This interdisciplinary trend is reflected in the theme of the 2010 Conference, and the event will see many young and talented academics from diverse fields attending.

The University of Sydney would very much welcome the support of your organisation in bringing together people from all over the world, who want to work together to shape a more sustainable and equitable future. A sponsorship from your organisation would not only help achieving this goal, but it would also benefit your organisation in

  1. Promoting your activities and your brand,
  2. Highlighting your organisation to young, bright talents,
  3. Recruiting top candidates into training and employment,
  4. Aligning your organisation in a high-profile partnership with the University of Sydney, and
  5. Exchanging knowledge with professionals and specialists in their field.

Please contact me if you would like further information.

I look forward to working with you in delivering a world-class conference, to a world-class audience, in partnership with a world-class university, in a world-class location.
