Fresh Science 

Do you know any early-career researchers who have peer-reviewed results and are eager to learn how to share their story with the world?

Please encourage them to nominate themselves for Fresh Science, the national competition that helps early-career researchers find their science story and share it.

Fresh Science is open for nominations and closes Wednesday 14 August. 

Participants receive a day of media training, an introduction to talking to business and government, followed by the chance to share their work with peers at the pub.

Fresh Science is looking for:

  •        early-career researchers (from honours students to no more than five years post-PhD)
  •        a peer-reviewed discovery that has had little or no media coverage
  •        some ability to present ideas in everyday English.

Fresh Science 2019 is an initiative of Science in Public. Last year, TRI based researchers, Dr Nathalie Bock (QUT), Farhana Matin (QUT) and Dr Arutha Kulasinghe (QUT), participated in the event and all three placed in the top ten. 

If you would like to get involved this year or would like to know more information, please see here
