Young Scientist Research Prizes Competition: Presentations, Judging and Prize Ceremony

Loading Events

To foster and recognise excellence in Victoria’s early-career scientists, the Royal Society of Victoria has established four prestigious competitive prizes open to Victorian students in their final year of doctoral candidature, in all areas of the Biomedical & Health Sciences, Biological Sciences (Non-human), Earth Sciences and Physical Sciences.

Following an assessment of applications across the four categories, we will select eight PhD finalists to present their work to us during National Science Week, on the evening of Wednesday, 19 August 2020. Join us to hear about the latest science from our emerging scientists, and to support and celebrate the achievements of Victoria’s upcoming high achievers.

In light of COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s competition will be conducted online, with presentations professionally filmed and finalists answering questions from RSV members and guests in a Zoom conference (invitations to register are sent via email and the Society’s membership page). The presentations and Zoom conference will be live-streamed via the Society’s Facebook site – please tune in at the allotted time to follow the proceedings and add your questions and comments.
