Postgraduate Workshop: Interdisciplinary Research in Environmental Science

Providing an opportunity to discuss research with other students across the university community.

Friday 24 February 2017
9.00 - 1.00PM

The University of Sydney

In environmental research, interdisciplinary collaboration is increasingly recognised as essential to implement effective conservation and sustainability outcomes. As such, postgraduate students at the University of Sydney are engaged in a wide range of research fields that contribute to sustainability and protecting environmental values.

This event is intended to capture the diversity of disciplines studied by postgraduate students in environmental research, providing an opportunity to discuss research with other students across the university community. Whether your interests lie in terrestrial/marine ecology, environmental law, social science, agriculture, or any of the diverse fields studied in environmental research, if you’re using interdisciplinary techniques, we’d love to hear from you.

Students are invited to attend and present their past, present, or proposed research to establish networks and gain advice from their peers to promote higher research standards and create platforms for collaboration. Key areas of interest are:

  • Human dimensions of wildlife and ecosystem management;
  • Nature in society and community engagement in conservation;
  • Innovative application of technology to conservation and environmental management.
