Beyond the Usual Suspects: NZ Science at Large
RNZ Nine To Noon audio interview with NZAS President Dr Craig Stevens, 9:20am Friday 22 April 2016
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the New Zealand Association of Scientists, our annual conference will bring together some of New Zealand's best thinkers to discuss the future for scientists in New Zealand, and what we can learn from the past. What do scientific careers look like in 2016, how have they changed, and how should they change in order to keep pace with international trends? Are we doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past, or can we learn from what has - and has not - worked in the science system of the past?
A report on the 2014 NZAS Conference is available at the President's Blog.
Registration is now open for the Science and Society themed NZAS Conference, taking place at the University of Auckland, 4-5 April. We look forward to seeing you there!
Confirmed speakers for the 3 April conference on the value of science in New Zealand - including Minister Steven Joyce, David Shearer, Dr Russel Norman and Sir Peter Gluckman - are profiled, and more precise timings are available for the individual sessions in the updated programme. Register now - numbers are limited.
The NZAS is hosting a one-day conference at Rutherford House in Wellington, on 16 April. The conference will focus on early career scientists.
The conference is targeted at emerging scientists, their existing and potential employers, future emerging scientists, policy makers and politicians.
