NZAS Annual Conference 2017 - link to full conference videos

We hope everyone who attended the conference yesterday enjoyed the event. For those who were unable to be there, the conference was livestreamed on YouTube thanks to Council member Troy Baisden - the complete videos are below. Unfortunately some scheduled speakers couldn't make it due to fog and other delays, so some of the programme changed at the last minute.

The Future for Scientists in New Zealand: NZAS conference 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?
