Add to Calendar 09/12/2015 5:00 PM 11/12/2015 5:00 PM Australia/Sydney Materials for the 21st Century: From design to application

Applications have now closed.

The Academy has hosted the Theo Murphy Australian Frontiers of Science symposium since 2003, bringing together the very best young Australian scientists to discuss emerging technologies, new opportunities and exciting cutting-edge advances in their fields.

This year, 70 outstanding early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) from the materials sciences field will identify ways to bring the ever-expanding ‘tool-kit’ of materials science to bear on the important materials-based problems of the 21st century.

Materials research heavily underpins the scientific, technological and industrial advancements that drive advanced economies and modern societies. As an endeavour, materials research is often highly collaborative, drawing upon skills from a wide variety of scientific disciplines to design and synthesize new materials, characterise their properties, and thereafter, develop new applications and technologies. Innovation in this domain is thus strongly reliant on healthy networks and strong partnerships towards ambitious common goals. This meeting will focus on building the collaborative networks that will ensure Australia’s role as a materials innovation powerhouse in the coming decades.

The 2015 Theo Murphy Australian Frontiers of Science symposium is generously supported by the Theo Murphy (Australia) Fund courtesy of the Royal Society of London. The Academy is delighted to have this funding available to enable some of Australia’s brightest young scientists to engage in fresh thinking about material science and to develop networks that will enrich their careers.
