Connecting postgraduate climate researchers. Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute

Are you a University of Melbourne PhD candidate or Masters by Research student researching on the topic of climate change?

About this Event

This is an opportunity to eat, drink and mingle with fellow climate change researchers.

The Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute’s Climate Transformations Research Cluster and the Climate & Energy College are bringing together all postgraduate researchers across the University whose research is connected to climate change, to share ideas, collaborate and network at this day-long event.

The conference aims to:

  • Foster the cross-fertilisation of knowledge and ideas, strengthening your research
  • Build interdisciplinary connections and research support networks, and
  • Increase your skills in translating and communicating climate change research, which is crucial to raising your research profile, creating future opportunities, and generating impact

New MSSI Research Translation Grants will be announced at this conference. These grants are awarded to PhD students in order to enable the broadcasting of their research to non-academic audiences.

The program for this event will be released shortly and involves workshops and expert panel discussions on climate change communications and interdisciplinary research. All food and drinks are provided and registration is free.
