You might like to participate in Science & Technology Australia’s upcoming Science Meets Parliament (SmP) program.

ASSCR is providing two of our members with $500 support to participate in SmP 2024. This is an opportunity for STEM professionals to build relationships and learn how to engage effectively with federal Parliamentarians, and importantly to represent ASSCR and our sector.
