Shale gas, uranium fuel leasing and gaining social licences to operate were among the issues discussed during a new ‘Research Tasting Night’ at University College London’s Australia campus in Adelaide on December 10.
Guests were ‘served’ a three-course sample of bite-sized (three-minute) presentations about research being conducted at UCL. The evening saw guests served canapés and wine while being treated to a series of three-minute, ‘bite sized’ talks from the university’s high-achieving students and post-doctoral researchers across a broad variety of subjects, from unconventional gas, nuclear power and low carbon economy to renewable energy systems and environmental impacts of energy production.
UCL Australia Chief Executive David Travers said: ‘The UCL Research Tasting Night is about encouraging a discussion on research in energy and mineral resources, while familiarising guests with the work being done at the university.’
‘This new event is designed to give guests a quick snapshot of some of our research, and the chance to network in a relaxed setting.’
A total of 12 presentations will be dished up throughout the evening, with starters ‘served’ by masters students, mains by postdoctoral research associates and dessert by PhD candidates of UCL.
Other research topics included the ‘The first steps for a uranium fuel industry’, to ‘How to manage the uncertainties of the shale gas development’ and ‘Revolutionising Australia’s future power grid with renewable energy’.
See the full list of presented topics in the Research Tasting Night ‘menu’.
