Early career research forums
ACCARNSI hosts two National Forums/Workshops each year to bring together early career researchers from around Australia with an interest in climate change adaptation research related specifically to Settlements and Infrastructure.
"...a fantastic opportunity to meet other researchers in the field... The diversity of projects meant the program of presentations was interesting and eclectic and I particularly gained a lot from the different methodological approaches that people are applying ...It was great to have a mix of post-grads, post-docs and in particular people from industry and government..."
PhD Candidate, Nadine White from Southern Cross University, 4th ACCARNSI ECR
Early career researchers from Australian universities, industry and government are invited to apply for one of twenty places in each forum. A travel grant of up to $500 AU is available to all successful interstate participants to help offset travel and accommodation expenses.
The forums aim to provide a unique opportunity for those conducting research in engineering, science, urban planning, built environment, social sciences, economics and business to meet fellow researchers in other Australian institutions and facilities. The forums also highlight the broad range of climate change adaptation research being carried out in Australia as well as presenting the potential to influence the future direction of climate change adaptation research in Australia.
ACCARNSI has been fortunate to have many talented early career researchers from around Australia participate in past forums and will continue to support this initiative in order to provide a forum and networking opportunities for early career researchers in climate change adaptation research.
