Life in a smart city; University of Adelaide Research Tuesdays

November 14, 2017, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

As the “Smart City” movement gathers pace worldwide, Adelaide is moving to the front of the pack. In fact, many experts believe we could be a global top five Smart City within a decade. But what, you may ask, does that actually mean for you? As founder of the Australian Smart Cities Consortium, the University of Adelaide is uniquely placed to shed light on this question; and in this fascinating forum, four of our leading Smart Cities researchers will do just that. Presenting perspectives from the fields of big data, public health, digital disruption, and architecture and urban design, these thought leaders will explain: the new ways of thinking reframing how we plan and design our communal and personal spaces; and how integrated “smart” technologies will increasingly be used to enhance your entire experience of living and working in them.

Science in the Pub: Rewilding

2 March, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The team at SciPub are pleased to invite you to join us for SciPub Re-wilding: The resotration of habitat to its natural state. How do we re-wild our environment? Why should we re-wild habitats? What are the advantages of re-wilding? Re-wilding is the restoration of habitat to its natural state. To restore an ecosystem so that little to no management of the habitat is required to maintain the environment. Join us at “Science in the Pub” to find out more about re-wilding, featuring NRM RAIN facilitator Dr Jennie Fluin.

NRM Science Conference 2018

10 April - 11 April

This conference is a chance to showcase the NRM science underpinning environmental decision making, policy and management in South Australia. Building on the success of the first two conferences, this year’s theme is Science for Policy in a Changing World. The conference will be a space for NRM researchers and practitioners to come together to consider the new challenges science faces in a post-truth world.

Big data, social media, and ‘alternative’ news sources are eroding traditional routes that turn science into policy action, how can our scientists and policy makers respond to these challenges to ensure better outcomes for South Australia?

It is a unique platform for NRM researchers and practitioners to come together and share their work. Through the conference, we aspire towards a more collaborative future that will lead to better outcomes for South Australia.

Nature-based opportunities for climate adaptation in the coastal zone webinar

19 June, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this webinar, Professor Stephen Swearer will discuss the current evidence for the efficacy of nature-based approaches in comparison to artificial coastal protection. He will then present several current and developing on-ground activities with local councils and land managers in Victoria as case studies to illustrate the types of collaborative interdisciplinary projects needed to encourage the wider use of ecologically engineered shoreline protection schemes in Australia.
