The NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer, Professor Mary O’Kane, invites you to join her for the 2017 Science & Research Breakfast Seminar Series to be held at Parliament House, Sydney.
The Science & Research Breakfast Seminar Series showcases excellence in research and development, which is generating economic, environmental, social and technological benefits for New South Wales. The six-part series will again feature some of the State’s best and brightest, and highlight its tremendous research strength across a diverse range of disciplines.
The seminars attract up to 200 leaders from government, business and industry, academia and the R&D community – enlightening and exciting them about the innovative research happening right here in our own backyard.
“We are fortunate to have some of our very best researchers locked in to talk about their extraordinary work in 2017,” Professor O’Kane said. “And there’s something for everyone: from childhood obesity to climate change; Australia’s human and environmental history and the reptiles that inhabit our great land; and entrepreneurialism and innovation.”
