GROvember

UON Graduate Research is excited to tell you about our first HDR Festival month.

Throughout November we are hosting over twenty workshops and seminars addressing a wide variety of research-related topics.

There is a mixture of UON and external speakers sharing their expertise with you.

Follow the links below to find out more about each of the sessions and register your interest.

All the sessions are free to attend.

In recognition of one of our keynote speakers - Richard Jones AM, CEO of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, we will have a collection box for the Westpac helicopter at each of the sessions if you wish to donate to supporting that service.
