Networking, science communications, public engagement and advocacy for convergence science
The Convergence Science Network has provided significant local and international networking opportunities, fostered new relationships and collaborations and contributed to a better informed community, while generating excitement about science and lifting Melbourne’s global profile and reputation for science excellence.
It is a unique and active network in the convergence of the life, physical and engineering sciences. The Network offers the opportunity to share knowledge, expertise, aspirations, problems and ideas among a diverse group of people.
The community of interest is growing and engaging with us, we are respected for our commitment to communicating and inspiring the public with developments in exciting fields of science.
Be part of our network, join our community and attend one of the many free lectures, workshops or seminars.
Network events are held every month, refer to our calendar to see the upcoming talks, seminar or our newest initiative, 'opening the vault' where network sponsors open up their labs for viewing.
