Event description

Description

For our End of Year Gathering NECTAR is joining forces with the Joint Colleges of Science to present:

Collaboration across boundaries


Solutions to the world’s intractable problems are more likely to come out of collaborations across disciplines, such as between industry, government and academic institutions, than out of isolated disciplines (ANU Strategic Plan 2017). This event offers an opportunity to network and build collaborations across these boundaries. The Early Career Academic Network of ANU (NECTAR) and the Joint Colleges of Science at ANU invite you to participate. This will showcase the future leaders: early career researchers and academics of ANU as well as potential collaborators from invited Industry and goverment bodies.

Program:

9am - 10am Mornign tea and poster set up

10am -12pm Building industry collaborations - panel discussion

Building industry collaborations and philanthropy through to other sources of funding (Not ARC or NHMRC) workshop and panel discussion. Various academic and professional staff from the University will speak about other funding sources available to fund research and describe what is classified as Category 2, 3 and 4 funding and philanthropy and the services at the University to facilitate access to these funding sources.

12pm -1pm Poster session - with lunch and Jazz from the ANU School School of Music

Poster session and art exhibition, with canapé lunch. This exhibition will showcase early-mid career researchers from ANU who are interested in building ‘collaboration across boundaries’ as well as potential colaborators from invited industry and government participants. Industry and Government representatives will judge a competition for the most engaging poster. The Prize will be research funds of up to $2000 (to be used for research only, details coming soon).

1pm - 1.30pm Leading the future

Early Career Academics who make collaborations across boundaries may well lead the future. Key note speaker: Professor Brian Schmidt, ANU's Vice-Chancellor and Nobel Laureate, followed by award ceremony.
