Fresh Science is a national competition helping early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and turns them into spokespeople for science, giving them a taste of life in the limelight, with a day of media training and a public event in their home state.
We run Fresh Science in every state where we can secure funding.
If you would like to partner with us on Fresh Science, please get in touch.
