PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE
One of the goals of the Australian National University (ANU) Climate Change and Energy Change Institutes (CCI and ECI) is to build and support a cohesive, interactive community of researchers and educators at the ANU, and to promote knowledge transfer in all aspects of climate change and energy change.
It is important to the CCI and to the ECI to support research students in these fields, as they are the future researchers, science leaders and policy advisers, resolving real-world problems and contributing nationally and globally to climate change and energy change solutions. For the last two years we have held an annual Student EXPO to bring together scholars and researchers to engage in thoughtful, stimulating discussion and to share perspectives and experience. This year the CCI and the ECI invited our colleagues at the ANU, University of Canberra and the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) to participate in the EXPO and to profile the postgraduate research being undertaken at our universities.
This year, the Student EXPO will commence with an address by Professor Lesley Hughes from Macquarie University, and former Climate Commissioner. The EXPO will conclude with ANU/ACT Government The Solar Oration 2013* by Giles Parkinson, founder and editor of RenewEconomy.com.au. Below is the program:
12.00 Presentation by Lesley Hughes
13.45 Student Presentations
15.05 Afternoon tea
15.20 Student presentations
16.35 Closing and move to The Hall
17.00 The 2013 Solar Oration presented by Giles Parkinson at The Hall, University House*
*Please RSVP at www.solaroration.eventbrite.com.au
There will be a Prize for the best presentation (poster or oral) comprising a certificate and a $500 contribution to attend a conference in your field within one year of the Student EXPO.
