Impact Pathfinders: Building a national community of impact-focused researchers - Oct 2023
Cruxes Innovation is very excited to announce the next event in our Impact Pathfinders series, where the community of impact-focused researchers will gather to hear from leaders in the field.
The Impact Pathfinders events are designed to de-mystify the pathways and processes researchers take to create impact and share experiences of researchers who have created real-world impact through their research, and are continuing to do so.
We know creating impact from research is an ultra-marathon, not a sprint. For research-based solutions to complex challenges to be adopted, a diverse team with different skills and mindsets needs to come together. So it’s more important than ever to build a strong community of impact-focused Australian researchers who will inspire, support, mentor, and encourage one another on their journeys to unlock the potential of their amazing research to make a difference in the world.
Join us at the next Impact Pathfinders event on Thursday 5th October at 2 pm AEDT (Syd/Mel) to be part of this growing community and hear Dr. Aaron Tranter, Research Fellow at ANU and co-founder of Aqacia share his learnings and insights on how he draws on expertise in fundamental and emerging research areas of quantum optics to solve industry/end-user problems.
Impact Pathfinders events will be run quarterly, with a different guest speaker each time. The events will be one-hour webinars, with this format:
- Our guest speaker will share their stories and what they have learned (20 minutes)
- Followed by 20 minutes of Q&A
- The final 20 minutes will be informal networking in breakout rooms.
Who is this event for?
The Impact Pathfinders events are for Australian researchers in any field who want to make a difference in the world with their research. They are particularly aimed at mid-career researchers with an established place in the research community who are thinking about focusing the remainder of their careers on generating impact.
We will be limiting the number of participants to this event to maintain the quality of engagement for those involved. So get in now to save yourself a spot!
Help us build this community! If you are a researcher with a story and experience to share, or want to find out about future events, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
