2014 Kenneth Myer Lecture
Science and Society: Exploring the Role of Research in Australian Lives to be delivered by Professor Brian Schmidt AC
Join Nobel Prize recipient Professor Brian Schmidt AC as he discusses how science permeates Australian lives, whether through a metaphysical contemplation of our place in the universe, or as we surf the internet using Wi-Fi. In this lecture, Professor Schmidt will explore the relevance of science to our daily lives, suggest ways that Australia could be getting more out of science, and ponder what science might bring us in the coming decades.The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Foyer.
The Kenneth Myer Lecture is supported by The Kenneth Baillieu Myer Trust.
