The third annual Regional Universities Network (RUN) Regional Futures conference was held in Rockhampton from 21 to 24 June and was attended by over 150 delegates from the six RUN universities, government and business representatives. It was an opportunity for a number of FedUni staff, researchers and HDR students to present their work. FedUni delegates included Prof Caroline Finch (ACRISP), Asso Prof Helen Thompson (CeRDI) and Bonnie Chew (Aboriginal Education Centre), along with students Shirish Sharma (Smart Cities), Thomas Hill (Precision Agriculture), Himalaya Singh (Sports Injuries), Adam Hulme (Sports Injuries) and David Ebbs (Sustainable Water). Delegates appreciated the opportunity provided by the university to share their work and interact with colleagues from other institutions, particularly when the temperature in Rockhampton was 25°C, while in Ballarat it was 2°C and snowing.
