The University of Tasmania recognises that conference attendance is an important research activity which contributes to the research abilities and profile of a graduate research candidate. Significant skills can be gained and networking opportunities can arise which lead to future research collaborations and employment opportunities. Similar benefits can be gained from participating in short internships and other research training activities at research facilities or institutions of international standing in the candidate's discipline area. The Conference and Research Travel Fund has been established to assist candidates to participate in these important activities.
