Event description

Description

Two new research Centres are about to be launched in South Australia.

The Centre for Conservation Science and Technology (CCoST) is a provider of innovative science and technology methods and analysis to deliver practical and affordable solutions to the most pressing conservation and natural resources management challenges globally. CCoST is unique in having inter-disciplinary research strengths in biodiversity and biosecurity monitoring, conservation and restoration, and identifying illegal trade in biological products.

The Australian Bioactive Compounds Centre, is a joint research Centre between the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia. The Centre applies ecological and Indigenous knowledge to improve the efficiency of identifying biologically active compounds from plants found in Australia, in particular from its unique arid environments. It works with commercial partners to fast-track these into commercially useful products in areas including medicine and agriculture.

Guest Speakers will be Professor Birger Møller, Professor of Plant Biochemisty, University of Copenhagen and David Emmett, Senior Vice President, Asia-Pacific Field Division of Conservation International.

Please join us to officially launch these exciting new ventures and discover more about how the Centres can help you and South Australia. Refreshments will be provided.
