Advancing Western Australia Research Education (AWARE)
AWARE is a collaboration between the five WA universities involving the research higher degree areas of each university (Curtin University, ECU, UWA, Murdoch and Notre Dame). The program aims to provide higher degree by research students in WA with opportunities to develop their research and professional skills. Two main initiatives are offered: the INSPIRE conference and seminar series, and iPREPWA, an industry based six-week internship that gives small teams of HDR students the opportunity to work in small teams to develop solutions for industry projects and problems.
Please go to the AWARE website to find out more about these and other exciting initiatives and events.
AWARE also supports the WA chapter of the ResBaz conference for research students (30 Jan – 1 February 2017) hosted by Curtin University. ResBaz is a 3-day intensive conference where researchers come together to up-skill in ‘next generation digital research tools and skills’. Head to the ResBaz Perth website for full event and registration details.
