27 July 2011: Nick Murray attends the CSIRO Climate Adaptation Flagship’s Science Symposium in Melbourne. The symposium is held approximately yearly and brings together scientists from across the Flagship to provide an overview of the flagship’s research and discuss research opportunities and user needs of climate adaptation science.
As one of the flagship’s top-up scholarship recipients, Nick was invited to attend the symposium to gain an overview of CSIRO’s flagship research, network with CSIRO flagship scientists and meet the other PhD students who are affiliated with the flagship. A broad range of speakers presented their work by either talk or poster and several round-table workshops were held. Nick had many interesting discussions with other attendees, saw plenty of great work and left the symposium with a couple key contacts and some new ideas for his research. He also walked away with a bottle of wine after winning the best student presentation prize!
