The UWA Profiles provide an opportunity to highlight you, your work and your achievements to the world. Come to this session to see some of the options that are available to most effectively feature your teaching, research, and engagement activities.

This event is suited to UWA researchers (staff and postgraduate students)


Writing for The Conversation

Time: 10:30 – 11:15

Find out how you can share your research expertise with the readers of The Conversation, one of Australia’s leading independent news media outlets, by joining its global virtual newsroom of over 25,000 authors. Written by academic experts and edited by professional journalists, The Conversation’s news and current affairs analysis is now read by some 35 million people a month worldwide.

Michael Hopkin is The Conversation’s Environment + Energy Editor, and he’s also its only editor on this side of the Nullarbor. Previously a journalist with Nature, Fairfax and The West Australian, he has more than a decade’s experience as a specialist science and environment correspondent.

This event is suited to UWA researchers (staff and postgraduate students). 


Your research – finding and developing new opportunities

Time: 12:00 – 12:45

You know your research and the experts in your field, but are you maximising your opportunities for available funding and collaboration?

In this session an overview will be provided of the services and support offered by the Research Development Team. The Research Development Team operates as a team of three embedded in each Faculty and seeks to bridge gaps and build new relationships, networks and partnerships both within and outside UWA. The team is uniquely positioned to help you broaden your research profile, and can identify and connect you with other resources in the University that may assist with this.

This event is suited to UWA researchers (staff and students).


An introduction to the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre

Time: 13:30 – 14:15

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre delivers nationally recognised high-performance computing and data services to enable high impact research; accelerating science and discovery through technology, expertise and collaboration.

Available to Australian university researchers. Join this presentation to learn about the Centre’s systems, services and how to access them for free.


Planning for impact

Time: 14:30 – 15:15

The emphasis on research impact continues to grow in Australia. In 2018, the ARC undertook Australia’s first Engagement and Impact Assessment. This rated how the research arising from Australian Universities has contributed to our society and economy.

How do you document and articulate the impact or engagement activities that are part of your research? Through impact planning you can create a pathway that focuses your engagement activities and enables the creation, monitoring and evaluation of impacts related to your research.

During this workshop you will:

  • become more familiar with the ARC’s Engagement and Impact Assessment: what is impact? what is engagement?
  • be introduced to a range of impact planning tools
  • begin to think about planning for impact in the context of your own research

Dr Laila Simpson, Manager Research Impact and Engagement Office will be presenting the seminar.

This event is suited to UWA researchers (staff and students).


Measuring your research performance

Time: 15:30 – 16:15

Being able to measure and describe the performance and quality of your research is an integral part of grant funding and career development applications. This session will provide an overview of the tools and metrics you can use to provide evidence of your research performance.

This event is suited to UWA researchers (staff and HDR students).
