Can science and politics mix? How do our future science stars make a contribution to the policies that shape the nation? Should parliamentarians think more like scientists, and vice versa?
These questions and more will be tackled in the fourth STA Topical Science Forum for 2014 at the iconic John Curtin School of Medical Research, with a high-calibre group of speakers.
The panel includes: Australian Research Council Chief Executive Professor Aidan Byrne, ACT Senator Kate Lundy, Science & Technology Australia CEO Catriona Jackson and forum chair science communication expert Dr Will Grant. Questions will be welcomed from the floor and from some of the nation’s top science PhD students, who are attending this event as part of a two-week intensive training course courtesy of EMBL Australia.
Light refreshments will follow the event.
