Research Tuesdays

Our doors open every month

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. Our doors open every month.

Upcoming Event

Positive Charge

The goal is unarguable: Australia must transition to a CO2-free economy. Indeed, with climate change accelerating, the same is true throughout the world. But exactly what our energy mix might look like when we get there? Debate rages.

In this special Research Tuesdays forum, three leading University of Adelaide energy researchers will dissect the issues, highlight the opportunities and explain the exciting science powering the push to renewables.

We hope you’ll join the conversation.

Date: Tuesday, 11 June

Time: 5.30pm

Location: The Braggs Lecture Theatre, North Terrace campus, Adelaide
