Lunch bites: Careers for CRC Students

Thursday 11 April 2024, 12-1pm AEDST  

Are you a doctoral student engaged on a project backed by a CRC or post-CRC entity? Are you keen to connect with experienced researchers and learn about the wealth of opportunities available to PhD graduates from CRCs?

If so, Cooperative Research Australia (CRA) invites you to join its ‘Lunch Bites: Careers for CRC Students’ webinar.

This is the first in a series of Lunch Bites sessions that aims to generate a ‘highly interactive environment in which CRC students can interact with CRC alumni who have made established careers in the Australian innovation sector’, states CRA.

The ‘Careers for CRC Students’ webinar will be moderated by Associate Professor Caroline Tiddy from the University of South Australia and MinEx CRC.

Assoc. Prof. Tiddy will be joined by guest speaker Dr Thomas Ting. Dr Ting is the Executive Director of Australia’s Economic Accelerator (AEA) program, a 10-year, $1.6 billion-dollar competitive grant program that funds research translation and commercialisation projects and opportunities from Australian universities.
