Help us find the next generation of Fresh Scientists
Nominations for Fresh Science 2017 close next Thursday 31 August. So encourage all the great early-career researchers you know to apply and become our next generation of spokespeople for science.
Thank you Curtin, UWA, Murdoch, Edith Cowan, Notre Dame, Adelaide, UniSA, Flinders, Monash, Melbourne, LaTrobe, Deakin, Swinburne, RMIT, UNSW, UQ, QUT, Griffith, and CSIRO for your support.
Next year the Australian Government’s Australia Now program will focus on Japan. Look out for opportunities to be involved.
See some examples of Australia Japan partnerships in innovation.
They include giant robot trucks, repairing teeth together, new malaria drugs, and solar furnaces.
Watch and download the videos here.
There is also a new batch of Stories of Australian Science, including making motorcycle clothing safer, robotic arms for stroke rehab, finding gold with volcanoes and much more.
You can read and share the stories via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Just about every science organisation in Australia got behind National Science Week this year, with a record breaking 2,100+ events around the country.
But there’s no time to rest. 2018 Science Week grants open soon and next year’s dates are 11 – 19 August. More below.
We’re holding communication courses around the country over the next month.
If you or any of your staff need help shaping your science into a story for stakeholders, the public, industry, or the media, join us for one of our training courses. Or talk to us about a customised course—our entry level session takes just 90 minutes.
We’ll be in Sydney on 31 August, Melbourne on 12 September, Canberra on 5 September, Adelaide on 19 September and Perth on 21 September. More below.
Finally, it’s the Eureka Prizes next week.
We’re not driving the media this year, so I’m looking forward to sitting back and enjoying a good night with friends and colleagues, and celebrating some of our best Australian science. You can read more about the finalists here: https://australianmuseum.net.au/2017-eureka-prizes-finalists
