Sponsors and Supporters

It has been a challenging time for science and communication of the value of researchers and universities has never been more important. The Fresh Science program empowers future leaders of science to engage with the community, media, government, and industry.

2021 will be the 23rd year. Thanks to our sponsors for helping to empower young researchers and bring Fresh Science to the attention of the media.

Events are confirmed for Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. We are still working on the final sponsorships to lock in events for SA and WA.
Venues are close to confirming. Events will occur in each state from mid-October through November.
Nominations will be open to all researchers from across Australia. If a researcher’s nomination is successful and we have not secured funding for a state event, they will be invited to attend one of the other state events at their own cost.

In 2021 we have the support of the following:


The University of Queensland, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology, University of Southern Queensland, University of the Sunshine Coast, and delivered by Econnect Communication.

In partnership with:
