ANU New Research Showcase: Climate, Energy & Disasters

Please join us for a showcase of early-stage innovative research projects that are building capabilities for addressing the challenges of climate change, energy transition, and disasters. These projects were seed funded by The Australian National University (ANU) in 2022 to enhance interdisciplinary collaboration through advancement of novel research in these areas.

Hosted by Dr Roslyn Prinsley, Head of Disaster Solutions at the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy and Disaster Solutions (ICEDS), with opening remarks from ANU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian P. Schmidt AC, the event will feature snapshot presentations from researchers sharing early findings and impact pathways of novel technical, scientific and social approaches to climate change, energy and disasters.

Presentations include:
