ECR in Energy Symposium
Symposium date: Friday, 29 May 2020
The ECR Energy Symposium invites young professionals and students aged 18-35 years to participate. We are seeking motivated, engaged, dynamic and creative individuals from government, business, research and the community sector working in the emerging energy and environmental technologies.
Whether you already play a leadership role, or keen to be a leader in your field , we’d love to hear from you. The ECR Energy Symposium will provide an excellent platform for scientists, especially young academics and industrial engineers, to exchange and share their knowledge and ideas in the field of energy and environmental technologies, as well as to interact with world-leading researchers to discuss their latest advances and breakthroughs.
All ECR researchers selected to present at Oz Future Energy will present within the ECR Energy Symposium on Day 3 for the conference (Friday the 29th of May). This Symposium is specially designed to run as the only session (along with Industry Day) on the final day of the conference, so that ECRs receive a special opportunity to present without multiple parallel sessions running. In addition to this, ECR in Energy Commitee is also organising Power Pitch, with the final pitch to be held on the networking nights on 29 May and best pitch will be rewarded through prizes (prize to be announced).
To submit an abstract, please go to submission portal
Power Pitch - 29 May 2020
The Power Pitch invites all participants in the Oz Future Energy to participate in a dynamic 3-minute pitch to “sell their research”. We are seeking motivated, engaged, dynamic and creative individuals working in the emerging energy and environmental technologies.
Whether you already play a leadership role, or keen to be a leader in your field, we’d love to hear from you. The Power Pitch provides an excellent platform to everyone to present their ground-breaking ideas and findings to venture capitalists, government and industry.
A short expression of interest (EOI) will be sent out to all participants who are participating at Oz Future Energy within 2 weeks of abstract submission closure. The power pitches would be judged by a panel consisting of one academic, one industry representative and one member from Start-up space. The best presentations will be rewarded through prizes (to be announced).
