Research Week in September gave UWA the chance to open its doors and showcase some of the ground-breaking and diverse research that takes place at the University.
The Perth campus hosted more than 5000 visitors and participants at 60 free events with this year’s theme focussed on rock art. The Rio Tinto Indigenous Partnerships Exhibition, Murujuga, Dynamics of the Dreaming and Ice-Age Vision were just some of the events showcasing this.
Other events included the always-popular Three Minute Thesis which challenges researchers to explain their research topic in language that anyone can understand, in three minutes or less!
