Sponges that can soak up CO2 where it’s not wanted and quickly release it somewhere beneficial—such as greenhouses—have been developed by Australian researchers. “Special sponge materials called magnetic organic frameworks, or MOFs, are highly effective at soaking up and storing gases such as CO2 at the point of emission. But we hadn’t worked out how…
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 secure operational funding.
Fresh Science 2021.
After the disruptions of this year, Fresh Science will return in 2021.
Nominations will open in April and close in June.
Events will run across the country in October and November in states where we secure the funding.
In 2019, the program ran in NSW, SA, VIC, WA and in QLD.
