The Co-Lab aims to boost domestic STEM capacity with new opportunities for career-oriented education in cutting edge research that uniquely serves Australia's security mission. 

For current ANU students

N-Way Handshake - Networking events

At Co-Lab, we run monthly networking events for Australian students currently studying at ANU. These events are an opportunity to hear what it's like in a typical and perhaps not-so-typical working day at ASD, and sometimes cover more technical subjects. ASD experts are available to answer any questions you might have and it's a good way to meet like-minded students and researchers. You can sign up for these events here.
