Multi-disciplinary research centre ILWS will host its online conference ‘Research for a Changing World’ on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 November.
ILWS members will participate in 45 presentations that will take place over the two days to showcase what they have discovered and learnt during their recent research projects.
Presentations align with ILWS’s four research themes - Biodiversity Conservation, Environmental Water, Rural and Regional Communities, and Sustainable Development (International).
Research topics include prediction of migration of PFAS in soil and groundwater, estimating the impacts of mega-fire on native animals, gender equality in the construction industry, e-health therapy for isolated new mothers, the origins and implications of the Murray cod commercial fishery, and enablers and barriers of a four-day week.
ILWS Acting Director Associate Professor Andrew Hall said members of the public are encouraged to register for any sessions that might be of interest.
“Our researchers share a common vision to conduct research that will truly improve the world we live in,” he said.
“ILWS is having an impact to improve our long-term environmental, economic, and social prosperity.
“This is a chance to hear from academics about what their research has uncovered and how it will shape the future.”
Former Member for Indi Ms Cathy McGowan, AO, will open the conference.
Free registration is now available on the Eventbrite website and available to University staff and students, and interested members of the public.
