Network events are held throughout the year across Melbourne. Watch for upcoming talks, seminar or our newest initiative, 'opening the vault' where network sponsors open up their labs for viewing.

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.


Be part of our network, join our community and attend one of the many free lectures, workshops or seminars.


We Engage with the community to share developments in convergence science and how these advances impact medicine and health care.   We Inspire the research community, start-ups, existing businesses,  government agencies and schools to take advantage of the opportunities offered by convergence science.   We Create the environment and opportunities for new ideas, knowledge and resources across different science disciplines to come together to improve health.


Our programs include presentations from science thought leaders and practitioners, events where we explore topical issues in more depth and we'll be presenting some of our brightest scientists who will share their exciting work in convergence science.
