Online Only: Cutting Edge Research making a difference in the Hunter

*Webinar Only* What if we could help solve global water shortages by creating water from air? What if we could develop new treatment techniques for stroke patients that transform lives and medical practice? What if we could find ways to better protect our coastlines – like Stockton Beach? Imagine new technologies that could help bring some of our native species back from the brink of extinction.

Due to increasing community and government concern over Coronavirus, Engineers Australia has decided to temporarily suspend all face-to-face events. This includes events which meet our previously imposed attendee limits. We will continue to offer members access to our online events and services such as EAXchange. We are also working hard to deliver more for our members in this area over coming months.

 

What if you could help solve global water shortages by creating water from air? What if we could develop new treatment techniques for stroke patients that transform lives and medical practice? What if we could find ways to better protect our coastlines – like Stockton Beach? Imagine new technologies that could help bring some of our native species back from the brink of extinction. At the University of Newcastle, these scenarios are more than just wishful thinking. We’re turning these – and other ideas – into reality. In this talk, University of Newcastle Vice-Chancellor Professor Alex Zelinsky AO, will outline how some of the world-class research being led by the University is making a difference in the Hunter and the world.
