Each month, the University of Adelaide holds a Research Tuesday event in which the university’s researchers come together to discuss their work to uncover new knowledge and shed light on the world’s biggest challenges. Students, teachers, alumni and those with a curious mind are encouraged to come along and learn about the latest research and to be inspired to find solutions and make change.
In June, the Research Tuesday event will be “Invented in Adelaide”. Some of Adelaide University’s leading researchers will review a selection of the University’s past innovations, and highlight exciting current initiatives to nurture tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Over the years, Adelaide researchers have made vital contributions to landmark inventions including x-ray crystallography, penicillin, and the Sydney 2000 Olympic torch and cauldron; and there will undoubtedly be more.
The event will be held in the Braggs Lecture Theatre at the University of Adelaide at 5.30pm on the 13th of June. Register to attend here
