Add to Calendar 01/02/2019 9:00 AM 01/02/2019 9:00 AM Australia/Sydney Cooling Sydney Hack

A Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia)

Please note that is event is currently in the process of being redesigned and it will no longer take place in 12 December 2018. The event will be relaunched in 2019.

Cooling Sydney Hack was designed as a fast-paced and engaging full-day event seeking to inspire and showcase solutions that address urban heat and present strategies and actions to keep urban areas cool. The event was scheduled to take place on 12 December 2018.

After receiving feedback from EMCRs regarding the barriers that were preventing their participation at the event i.e. the event’s date and its Sydney-only focus, we are rescheduling and redesigning the event to address these barriers. The new event will allow more researchers working in urban heat from across Australia the opportunity to attend, participate and compete in the Hack. Stay tuned for more information.

The Australian Academy of Science, through the , will deliver an event for early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs), students, government and industry representatives interested in addressing issues related to urban heat.

This event will feature panel discussions with relevant stakeholders, breakout activities, networking opportunities and a fast-paced ‘Hack’ where selected EMCRs will have the opportunity to communicate the core of their collaborative research at the event.

About the Hack

Summers in urban cities are becoming hotter every year. Heatwaves are predicted to become more frequent and longer lasting, the impact of them on urban populations local economies and ecosystems are increasingly at risk. Strategies to mitigate or reduce risks of urban heat are complex and require transdisciplinary and/or collaborative solutions.

The Hack will take place throughout the day and aims to be an incubator for innovative research and ideas that present solutions to issues associated with extreme heat across urban areas.

We will release more information about the redesigned event soon, including timing, location and structure.

To stay up to date with the information about this event and other opportunities for EMCRs we invite you to .

The Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia)

The Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia) supports activities which provide tangible benefits to Australia’s early- and mid-career researcher (EMCR) community, with the overall goal of furthering scientific discovery. Activities are managed by the Australian Academy of Science and funds are made available by the generous support of the Royal Society through the Theo Murphy (Australia) Fund.
