SETAC AU Science Meets Parliament Ambassador Award

Category: Awards and Prizes

  04 Jan 2021

Science meets Parliament (SmP) is the major event hosted by Science and Technology Australia (STA). This event was first hosted in 1999 and takes place in Canberra in mid-March during non-election years.  Science meets Parliament (SmP) brings together about 200 of Australia’s top scientists and puts them face to face with the decision makers in Canberra. Participants include parliamentarians, staffers, lobbyists and journalists plus scientists from all disciplines.

This setting provides scientists with the opportunity to interact with politicians, policy makers and the media and gives you an opportunity to look at your science from a different perspective.  A range of topics are available including science in the media, the influence of science on policy making, the impact of science on Australia's economy and environment and its understanding in the broader community.

Applications are currently closed. The next round is likely to open in 2022, please come back then.
