Postgraduate students from Australian and New Zealand universities, who completed their degrees in 2017 or 2018, were invited to nominate for the inaugural AORA Student Research Awards. The nominations received show that a number of Australian universities carry out high calibre research aimed at improving the organics recycling supply chain, particularly by demonstrating the agronomic and environmental value of using recycled organic products, and by enhancing the efficacy of these products.
A selection committee comprising industry, academia, Government and consultants will assess the received nominations during the next two months. Winners of the inaugural AORA Student Research Awards, which are sponsored by Komptech, will be announced at the forthcoming AORA Annual Conference in Perth (1 – 3 May).
The young scientists will not only receive rewards for their outstanding work and have an opportunity to present their research and findings to the organics recycling industry, but they will also get an insight into the ‘real world’ of organics recycling and have a chance to mix and mingle with representatives of the entire organics recycling supply chain. Please make sure you engage with them and provide a warm welcome – they are an integral part of our future!
The AORA Student Research Awards are sponsored by Komptech and supported by CROWN University of Queensland.
