The AWA Victorian Branch is pleased to host its next Technical event: Ozwater24 Best Victorian Papers! 

Register Here

Join us as we continue accelerating action from Ozwater by hearing from some of our Victorian superstars.  This is your chance to hear directly from authors as they share the stories and discoveries which saw their Ozwater papers among Victoria’s best, as identified by their peers.

If you couldn’t attend Ozwater 2024 in person or you’re excited to keep the momentum locally, this is a great opportunity to engage with your like-minded industry colleagues. You will hear from a passionate group of presenters and have the opportunity to ask your own questions and share your own insights. The event in Melbourne and Geelong will include time for networking and light refreshments will be provided.

We are excited to announce that we will also have a Geelong hub at Deakin Waterfront Campus, where Deepak will be presenting to attendees and share his insights, alongside the live stream to the Melbourne Hub. Light refreshments and networking will also be available. 

As part of AWA’s objective to share, connect and inspire, we’re also keen for you to bring an emerging leader or early career professional from your organisation to the event with you.
