How would you and your team do?
A great way to train and test your best scientists is push them into the limelight by nominating them for a prize. As part of the #ideasboom, the Prime Minister has expanded his prizes for science and innovation and there are a host of other opportunities in this bulletin.
Or push your young researchers into Science Week – grants are open in most States.
We offer a service to test and refresh your narrative. Do you talk about additive manufacturing when you mean 3D printing? We can help you review and refresh your pitch.
And we offer media training – if you can guarantee a minimum of six people in a capital city we can organise a course.
This week also sees the opening of Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology at The University of Sydney. More on their launch below, and it’s not too late to join them http://bit.ly/23GrsWJ
And from next month you can meet the 2016 Fresh Scientists in pubs around the country – starting in Melbourne on 31 May.
More on all of those below.
In this bulletin:
- PM’s Prizes for Science – new prize and open until 28 April
- Need to talk about your research but unsure how? Join our media training
- Meet the 2016 Fresh Scientists at a pub near you
- Science Week 2016; Steve Woz, schools theme, and state grants
- And even more prizes (including the Eurekas, AMP Bright Sparks, Top 5 Under 40, Academy of Science awards and the WA Science Hall of Fame).
