Research Bites – the University of Sydney Researcher Talks Series – is a monthly forum hosted by the University’s Research Development team in which researchers get to talk about their research work These talks are interesting as well as informative to an audience drawn from the University’s staff and students as well as the general public. They are bit like a mini version of the ABC Catalyst program and TED Talks.
Glenda Wardle is speaking at the 17/04/2014 session at 1:00 in the Charles Perkins Centre Auditorium on A new way to get your research funded.
Glenda will describe an approach used in the Nutrient Network (NutNet, http://www.nutnet.umn.edu), a globally distributed experimental network that arose from a grassroots, cooperative research effort.
It would be really great if you could come along and hear my talk.
