Location

Due to Auckland’s recent COVID-19 community case, the event will be virtual-only. Zoom access details have been provided to registered attendees.

If you did not receive details, please contact Kelly.

Zoom etiquette: All attendees are encouraged to have cameras on, and microphones muted. Presenters can share their own screen.

For Speakers

When preparing your presentation, please aim for a general audience. Use lay terms as much as possible. Explain specific concepts. Schedule pauses to check the audience’s understanding.

Regardless of length, each project presentation should cover:

  • What problem you are trying to solve and why / what the research questions are. Why is this important for NZ? Why is it important commercially?
  • What you have done/achieved so far and key points of interest.
  • What you plan to do next.
  • A demonstration and/or commentary on pathway to “real world” application (where suitable).
  • What help you need / what you would have done differently.

Questions?

Please contact Kelly.
