Some highlights from the week include:

  • The ECU Research In A Nutshell competition challenging our staff and student researchers to present their work in just a few minutes;
  • Showcases, workshops and seminars, including the WAAPA Postgraduate Research Showcase on Saturday night;
  • A poster competition with displays stretching across a diverse range of schools and disciplines;
  • A postgraduate research expo;
  • Tours of our world-class labs and facilities.

Connect with the Big Picture at the Research Week launch and network with staff, students, alumni, collaborators and partners and come along to the Stories of the Sky with our Elder-in-residence Dr Noel Nannup, as he weaves together indigenous and modern knowledge about astronomy. Learn what the modern media phenomenon of ‘Fake News’ means with an expert panel of local media practitioners and academics. Hear from leading expert Professor Andrew Whitehouse from the Telethon Institute about the new frontiers in our understanding of Autism, and how current research projects are focusing on making Bunbury the most accessible regional city in Australia.
