The Waite Campus is the place to be on Thursday 1 November 2018! Not only famous for it’s ‘One Day Wine Sale’, Waite will also be hosting it’s third annual ‘Waite in the Spotlight’ event at Lirra Lirra.
This is your chance to stock up on wines from the University of Adelaide ahead of the festive season, then stay on for the afternoon to help celebrate the diversity of research at the Waite. Networking drinks and nibbles will be provided afterwards.
Details of both are below:
Waite in the Spotlight 2018
2.45pm Thursday 1 November, Lirra Lirra, Waite Road, Waite Campus.
Waite research is providing answers to these questions and more! Featuring TEDx-style talks, Waite in the Spotlight is a celebration of the diversity of research at the Waite, what they do, and why it matters. The talks at this event will be short, each focused on a single topic or idea springing from agriculture, food, wine and environmental science and designed to be thought-provoking and interesting to a non-scientific audience.
Why should we preserve trees in our cities and towns? Can we grow healthy crops in sandy soils? How important are insects to agriculture? Does the yeast a winemaker chooses really affect the wine produced? Can we really turn food waste into usable new products? Waite research is providing answers to these questions and more!
Featured this year are:
· Dr Kate Delaporte, Curator of the Waite Arboretum
· Dr Therese McBeath, CSIRO Agriculture & Food
· Dr Katja Hogendoorn, The University of Adelaide
· Dr Simon Schmidt, The Australian Wine Research Institute
· Dr Steve Lapidge, Fight Food Waste CRC
