The University of Adelaide Undergraduate Research Conference

The University of Adelaide hosted its fifth annual Undergraduate Research Conference on Thursday 25 July 2019.

This conference offers an exciting opportunity for students and recent graduates to showcase research completed as part of their undergraduate coursework, a summer or other research internship, a research-based degree program, or voluntary work. It is an excellent platform for budding researchers to demonstrate their communication skills, meet students from other disciplines, and learn how other disciplines approach research problems.
