2019 Research Futures Forum
4th and 5th July 2019, Parramatta South Campus
The Research Futures Forum (RFF) is an annual event that brings together all the HDR students, supervisors and interested staff in the SONM to present data and have discussions and network. These are three clear benefits of the RFF. Students present their research for 3 minutes if they are a senior student (more than half way through) or 12 minutes if a junior student (if less than half way through). We have questions at the end of each presentation to help support and get the students to think further. Students also have the opportunity to enter the three minute competition (3MT) and go on to represent the school at university level if they are successful. One of the best parts of the RFF is the networking and getting to know the other students and staff. We also undertake the annual reports at this event and so look at progress and where we need to support our students more. I really look forward to seeing you all there.
