Defence technology plays a vital role in any modern defence force. What do modern defence technologies involve, and what role do they play in shaping our future? Come along to SciPub to gain some insight on how the development of new technology is helping to safeguard our nation.
The team at SciPub are pleased to present The Science of Defence Technology on Friday 5th April at the Rob Roy Hotel(106 Halifax Street in the city). This event will include panellists from the Australian Government Department of Defence Science and Technology as well as industry partners helping to lead the way. This event kicks off at 6:00 pm and will finish by approx. 7:30 pm (doors will be open from 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early for seat).
The principal goal of SciPub is to make science engaging and accessible to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver short, 10-15 minute presentations on their area of expertise and then discuss questions from the audience via a moderator. Panellists are selected primarily on their ability to effectively communicate science in an engaging and non-technical manner. SciPub is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.
We are pleased to announce our panellists for The Science of Defence Technology are:
Dr Sholto Forbes-Spyratos – Space Systems Integration Engineer, Department of Defence Science and Technology
Dr Matthew Tetlow – CEO of Inovor Technologies
Dr Olivia Samardzic – Group Leader Electro-Optic Countermeasures, Department of Defence Science and Technology
Please take note. We endeavour to make your SciPub experience an enjoyable one. Although Eventbrite issues automated tickets, we do not check or collect tickets at the venue. The RSVP facility makes it easier for us to estimate numbers so that we can accommodate accordingly. RSVPing does not guarantee a seat. Doors are open from 5:30pm and due to the popularity of some past events, we would advise patrons to arrive early to avoid any disappointment. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you there!
