Our researchers are driven by the desire to understand. They work to uncover new knowledge and shed light on the world's biggest challenges. From tackling Meningococcal B to finding energy solutions for the future, our discoveries make a difference to people's lives across the world.
At Research Tuesdays we share this knowledge, every month. If you're curious about the changing world, we invite you to join us.
Research Tuesdays goes virtual
The University of Adelaide is monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and continues to take action in line with the latest Federal Government announcements. As result Research Tuesdays will transition to virtual lectures through Zoom and Facebook Live.
A virtual Research Tuesdays will enable audiences to continue to experience the lectures in a safe and healthy environment. The lectures will remain on the second Tuesday of the month, with the next lecture live streamed on Tuesday 11 August, 5.30-6.30pm.
November Research Tuesday
On one hand, digital technology is pulling us away from nature, the allure of screens entrancing young and old the world over. On the other, ironically, it’s becoming one of the environment’s most valuable allies.
Advanced tech is transforming the way we monitor and manage the natural world—and our impact on it. It’s big business too; in 2017, the global environmental technologies market was valued at US$1.12 trillion.
Underpinning important elements of this activity is research led by the University of Adelaide. Our teams are developing technology to monitor habitat clearance, prevent illegal logging, manage water systems and track entire ecosystems’ health.
In this uplifting presentation, you’ll hear what we’re doing, where, and how it’s helping.
Professor Andy Lowe is Deputy Dean – Partnerships and Collaboration in the University of Adelaide Faculty of Science. He is also the University’s Director of Food Innovation, a former Head of Science within the South Australian Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, and a past director of the South Australian Museum.
