Event description

Description

This is a shared Waite Campus event featuring TEDx-style talks celebrating the diversity of research at the Waite and exploring how science can provide solutions to the big problems facing the world today. Called ‘Waite in the Spotlight’, this event will feature selected talks from a range of disciplines and by speakers from across the Campus partners to showcase our work and some of our people.

The talks at this event will be short, each focused on a single topic or idea springing from agriculture, food, wine and environmental science and designed to be thought-provoking and interesting to a non-scientific audience. Delivered with clarity and enthusiasm, we hope they will provide an effective medium for increasing public awareness and understanding of the Waite, and why the work we do here matters.

Featured speakers

  • Professor Rachel Burton, the University of Adelaide and ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls - GutWoman
  • Richard Gawel, Australian Wine Research Institute - Mouth feel in wine
  • Dr Nina Welti, CSIRO Agriculture - Food forensics
  • Kym Perry, SARDI - Ecology, science that eats insect pests
  • Professor Mike Keller - University of Adelaide School of Ag, Food & Wine - Genome editing: is it safe?

Please arrive by 2:45pm for a 3pm start. Refreshments will be available after the talks at approximately 4:30pm.
