Fresh Science 2021 is now open for nominations!

Former Fresh Scientist, Dr Yee Lian Chew, says “I cannot recommend this program more. I was involved a long time ago (2013) but still use their tips and tricks today in my science communication.  The program managers are very supportive, encouraging and knowledgeable.”

Are you an early-career researcher?

Have you got a peer-reviewed discovery, invention, or results and want some publicity?

You might be one of this year’s Fresh Scientists.

Nominate for Fresh Science – a national competition that finds researchers with discoveries, helps them find the key, compelling ‘story’ in their research and then puts them in the spotlight, showcasing them to the public and the media.

Eligibility (what they are looking for):
  • Early-career researchers. Age per se is not a criterion, but you must have completed your PhD (if you have one) no more than five years ago. If you’re earlier in your career, that’s fine. This means you could be an honours student, a PhD student, or post doc.
  • Researchers currently working in Australia and preferably for work done in Australia.
  • Research which has produced peer-reviewed results i.e. you have a discovery, invention, patent etc.
  • Research which is currently being undertaken, or has been published/concluded since June 2020
  • Research that is newsworthy but has not had significant media coverage.
  • Researchers who can demonstrate, through the nomination form, some ability to present your research to a lay audience in a clear, interesting and informative way.
Nominations close at 5.00pm Thursday 29 July 2021 AEST.
