Travel Stories

To ensure the important research of the Robinson Research Institute continues, we invest in developing the careers of our next generation of researchers.

Each year our Early Career Researchers and Higher Degree Research students compete for travel funding from the Institute, which supports them in presenting their research to conferences around the world.

Through Travel Stories - they share their story, their research, and highlights of their experience.
