NCRIS Communication Teams Unite for Collective Impact

Share this:

On November 8th, the NCRIS Communication teams achieved a significant milestone by convening in person at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

This marked the team’s inaugural face-to-face meeting, fostering a full-day event dedicated to enriching learning opportunities, sharing insights and experiences, collaborative planning, and drawing inspiration from fellow team members to enhance the collective impact of NCRIS.

During this gathering, the NCRIS Communications team engaged with representatives from the Department of Education and NCRIS Directors to discuss emerging communication prospects. A noteworthy aspect of the day was a training session facilitated by the renowned science communicator, Professor Alan Duffy, who holds the position of Pro Vice-Chancellor Flagship Initiatives at Swinburne.

An added privilege was an exclusive tour guided by Professor Jarrod Hurley, the Supercomputing Program Leader at OzGrav, providing insights into their cutting-edge supercomputers, OzSTAR and Ngarrgu Tindebeek. Dr Marina Trigueros, our Communications and Outreach Coordinator, alongside fellow NCRIS Communications peers, delivered a compelling presentation on Effective Communication Strategies from Phenomics Australia.

This initiative is the result of sustained collaboration among NCRIS communication teams, the Department of Education, and NCRIS Directors. Notable achievements include the creation of thematic infographics, impactful social media campaigns, and the organization of group-specific events.

Following the NCRIS Communications Forum, a group of NCRIS Communication fellows had the privilege of touring one of Phenomics Australia’s nodes at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, specifically the Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG). Our sincere gratitude goes to Prof Kaylene Simpson and the VCFG team for providing an insightful tour of their facilities.
