A shared Waite Campus event featuring TEDx-style talks by local researchers is being planned for the afternoon of Friday 29 July and will take place at the Charles Hawker Conference Centre. Called ‘Waite in the Spotlight’, it is hoped this event will be an annual Campus fixture from now on, featuring selected talks from a range of disciplines and by speakers from across the Campus partners to showcase our work and some of our people to the world via YouTube and this website.
The six talks at this inaugural event will be short, each focussed 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. Delivered with clarity and enthusiasm, we hope they will provide an effective medium for increasing public awareness and understanding of the Waite, and why the work we do here matters.
Professor Göran Roos will be our special guest speaker; more details about the program, format and how you can participate will be out soon. In the meantime, save the date!
