Find out about ECU's Collaborative Research Network (CRN) through five minute project overview presentations, ranging from health, nano-photonics and nano-electronics to environmental science and technology in education. Scholarships are available to students for each project.
Come along to find out more about ECUs Collaborative Research Network (CRN) project. There will be short 5 min presentations from all 6 projects, providing a brief overview of each. Projects include:
- Promotion of mental health and wellbeing in young people
- Exercise medicine for the prevention and management of chronic disease
- Integrated health services to enhance community based health care
- Nano-photonics and nano-electronics to support national frontier technologies
- Protection of coastal ecosystems and marine resource management
- Advanced technologies for leading teaching and education practice
