Seminar Series

Each week the IAE hosts a seminar on a broad range of topics, such as environmental management, genetics, water science, ecotoxicology and conservation ecology. Speakers are drawn from external organisations and research institutions, as well as IAE researchers and students.

The seminars are open to the public, and are held most Friday's at 11:30am - 12:30pm.

As the ACT is in lockdown and campus is closed, the seminars will be held via Zoom. Meeting ID: 261 937 0043
