Present at the Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management Postgraduate Symposium – November 2019

Are you researching a fresh-water management issue? If you are, no matter what discipline you are researching, the Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management really, really REALLY wants to hear from you.

The Waterways Centre hosts an annual event which showcases post-graduate students from Lincoln University and University of Canterbury researching fresh water. It is set for Tuesday November 19, 2019. We are calling for abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

The conference offers students a chance to make new contacts within a supportive  community of emerging thinkers and researchers, and polish their science communication skills. Participating in the conference is an opportunity to present their research to a wide range of potential employers and water stakeholders. Beyond that, it is a great opportunity to understand how their work fits into, and contributes to a broad multidisciplinary research and policy context.

Attendance is free and includes lunch. Go here for the Abstract form Submissions close August 31.

Visit this page for prior conference abstract books. If you have any questions please contact suellen.knopick@canterbury.ac.nz.
