Research excellence showcased at Research Week Hobart

Last week, the Sandy Bay Campus came alive when UTAS Research Week Hobart delivered a comprehensive program showcasing UTAS research excellence and increased awareness of our vibrant research community.

The program comprised more than 32 events that engaged a diverse audience of more than 390 attendees. The program offered a mix of research administration seminars, tours of the Central Science laboratory and professional development workshops to develop and inspire staff and higher degree candidates.

Highlights of the week included Professor Doug Paton's session on 'Developing Disaster Resilient Communities' which brought together a large number of Tasmania's emergency services personnel, and Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) Professor Paddy Nixon’s talk on his research ambitions for the University.

Intimate sessions delivered by our ARC Future Fellows, as they shared a personal glimpse of their research journeys, were also very well received.

The Division of Research would like to thank everyone involved in the program throughout the year. We look forward to supporting another successful UTAS Research Week series in 2013.
