OUR first Collaboration across boundaries – a cross-disciplinary industry engagement – last Thursday (7 December) was a great success. Over 100 people attended to see 41 posters, including 5 posters presenters form CSIRO, 4 films and 4 artwork series.
NECTAR thanks the Industry representatives who attended and judged the competition including CSIRO, the Capital Health Network, the ACT Primary Health Network, and the Saudi Arabian Embassy among others.
NECTAR volunteers were instrumental in making this event a success, particularly Dr Elizabeth Sturgiss and Dr Umme Habiba Hossain. Thank you to all our NECTAR volunteers.
We would also like to thank our partners the Joint College of Science Early Career Academic Development Committee, particularly Julia Sharwood, and the Heritage Early Childhood Centre.
