National Research Forum

The 2018 ACDS National Research Forum will be held on September 24-25 at the Novotel Melbourne on Collins.

Ms Leanne Harvey, Executive General Manager of the ARC, will give the opening keynote. Ms Harvey is responsible for the ARC Engagement and Impact Assessment and will share her insights on it.

The program will feature high profile speakers on the strategic direction of National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), on the governance of science in relation to faculties and institutes, and on HDR students and end-user engagement. On the second day we have planned a session with senior CSIRO and university leaders on CSIRO and University relations in the age of engagement and impact.

The Forum commences at 9.30am on Monday 24 September and will conclude at 3pm on Tuesday 25 September. A detailed program will be circulated shortly.

The Forum dinner will be held on the Monday evening at the Novotel, which requires a $50 co-payment upon registration. The Forum itself is free – Register here!

This invitation is open to Deans, their ADR’s, AD’s Graduate Students and those in analogous leadership positions in science faculties and schools.
