Science meets Business 2015 is a first-of-its-kind event, aimed at starting a reshaped and refreshed conversation regarding Industry-STEM collaboration, identifying examples of good and bad practice, and avenues for change. A key aim is to broker better mutual understanding between science and business. This is critical if we are to make the most of our natural science and business talent, and encourage collaboration across cultures.
Are we alone in the universe or is alien life inevitable – the hunt is on and Australia’s in the front line!
This event was filmed and the footage is available HERE.
Australia is deeply involved in the biggest global hunt for intelligent life in space ever undertaken. Announced by Stephen Hawking in July, and funded by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, the $135 million project will scan the heavens for intelligent life beyond the Milky Way and into other galaxies. And Australia is in the front line. CSIRO’s hugely powerful Parkes radio telescope is one of only two that will scan 100 star systems for signs of life.
Science & Technology Australia, in conjunction with Professionals Australia, is currently undertaking its 2015 Professional Scientist Remuneration Survey and invites you to participate by completing the online questionnaire. Read More…
