2015 Colgate IADR New Zealand Section Student Poster Competition

Tuesday 2 June 2015 3:42pm

On Tuesday 2 June the 2015 Colgate IADR New Zealand Section Student Poster Competition winners were announced by competition convenor Associate Professor Nick Chandler. Each year, the SJWRI in conjunction with the IADR NZ Section, holds the Colgate IADR NZ Section Student Poster Competition for undergraduate and postgraduate research students, with award winners supported to attend that year's IADR Australia and New Zealand Division Annual Scientific Meeting and present their research. This year, with the Annual Scientific Meeting to be held in Dunedin in August, four prizes of $1,000NZD were kindly made available by Colgate New Zealand, with two further IADR ANZ Division Travel Grants also awarded to help towards meeting expenses such as conference registration and poster printing. Thank you to all this year’s competitors and their supervisors.
