The 30 minute lunchtime sessions will be held on November 4, 11 and 17.

Find out more about the exciting research currently being undertaken at the ARC Training Centre for Forest Value, through free online lunchtime sessions starting next Wednesday 4 November.

Centre Director Associate Professor Julianne O’Reilly-Wapstra said the Centre for Forest Value has been producing industry-ready graduates and postdoctoral fellows with broad perspectives of the forest industry since 2016.

“This is a great way to showcase the amazing work of our PhD students and the research taking place at the Centre.

Over the past four years we have seen our students excel in their research and make valuable connections and contributions within the forestry sector

Our aim is to keep our affiliates informed and to highlight some important milestones.”

The free 30-minute lunchtime sessions will be held on November 4, 11 and 17 from 12 noon and participants can register for the online event via Eventbrite where you will receive an email with the webinar link. A Q&A will be held at the end of each presentation.
