University science has grown into much more than the pursuit of fundamental discoveries, although that remains the well-spring for all that it does. University science now reaches out to engage at every stage of the cycle in which knowledge is turned into new and better ways of doing things.  The ACDS runs a number of events and provides a means for information sharing and collaboration to all those interested in science and mathematics research. 

The ACDS magazine Australian University Science highlights the interplay between university science research and industry as well as showcasing examples of how science works and the importance of supporting research at all stages .

The previous issues of the magazine are available here.
