Edith Cowan University (ECU) is hosting an exciting program of events as part of its inaugural Research Week, happening from 20 to 28 August.
ECU Research Week brings together staff, students, current and future researchers to share knowledge, ideas and inspiration through workshops, seminars, public lectures and information sessions.
Anyone considering postgraduate studies is welcome to attend one of the Research Career Information Sessions.
These free sessions are an excellent opportunity to learn more about your options, discuss your passions and visit our campuses.
ECU researchers will also be providing advice and sharing their experiences at seminars and workshops throughout the week.
ECU's latest research will be showcased at free public lectures on cyber-safety, the global financial crisis, advances in Alzheimer's research, and research into children's literacy.
The WA Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) Music Research Group will perform Shock of the New, featuring electronic instruments, digital works and more traditional compositions at the Spectrum Project Space in Northbridge.
Professor John Finlay-Jones, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) says that this year's Research Week will be a terrific opportunity for the community and prospective students to appreciate the opportunities and outcomes presented by ECU's research programs.
"I encourage anyone thinking about research to get involved in Research Week and find out more," he said.
"The public lectures also provide an opportunity for everyone to hear about the ground-breaking research being undertaken at ECU which has a real impact on our daily lives."For more information about Research Week events, visit www.ecu.edu.au/research/week/overview.
