EQUS seminar series

You are here

The EQUS seminar series is back!  The revamped seminar series will alternate technical and non-technical talks, providing an opportunity to share knowledge within the Centre, spark dialogue and new collaborations, and develop skills and understanding across a range of topics.

Who is it for?
The seminar series is for EQUS members and any visiting staff or students (recordings will be available for EQUS members only).

Who will be speaking?
Speakers may be internal or external to EQUS, of any level (students to CIs), and from academia, industry or government.

What topics will be covered?
The seminars will alternate between technical and non-technical topics.  Technical talks could invovle industry representatives sharing information about new technologies, senior researchers sharing new research discoveries or published research outcomes, or PhD students sharing their latest research or presenting a problem they may assistance with.  Non-technical talks will cover topics such as entrepreneurship, equity, diversity and inclusion, project management and science communication.

When is it?
Nominally, seminars will be every second Tuesday 12–1 pm AEST, but days and times will vary depending on the availability of speakers.  Seminars will be delivered via Zoom; if a speaker is able to present in person at one of our nodes, an in-person event may also take place at that node.

The EQUS seminar series provides an opportunity for EQUS members to gain knowledge and understanding through a range of engaging speakers and topics, to present their research and to discover, discuss, debate and problem-solve.  We hope that it will also spark dialogue and collaboration across the Centre.

If you would like to propose a topic or speaker, please contact the EQUS COO or one of your local node representatives.  See below for upcoming seminars and keep an eye out for email invitations for Zoom and venue details.
