Over 20 post-graduate researchers, sponsored by the Sheep CRC, Meat & Livestock Australia, and Australian Pork Limited, converged in Sydney for a week-long professional development course, which included two days of intensive communications training.

Murdoch University post-graduate program leader Dr Graham Gardner said the annual course rotated its content over a three-year cycle, to ensure the young scientists were able to apply and communicate their research findings in real world situations.

“This public communications workshop is a vital component of the training program as it emphasises the importance of dealing with livestock producers and industry partners, which is the foundation for ensuring high quality science research is grounded,” Dr Gardner said.
