Science at the Shine Dome is a three-day event in May each year where Australia’s most influential scientists gather at the Shine Dome in Canberra to celebrate science and to honour outstanding achievements in science.
Science at the Shine Dome is an event for researchers from all disciplines and career levels to come together and share knowledge. This includes the admission of new Fellows to the Australian Academy of Science, national awards to honour excellence at all career levels, a networking gala dinner with industry and political representatives, and a high-powered symposium on an issue of national importance. A major focus at Science at the Shine Dome is giving early- and mid-career researchers professional development and the opportunity to engage with senior scientists.
Science at the Shine Dome attracts a national and international audience of over 400 people and boundless networking opportunities with Australian Academy Fellows, chief scientists, Nobel Prize winners, early and mid-career researchers, government representatives, politicians, media, science associated organisations, and the science interested general public. Online, Science at the Shine Dome reaches audiences of over 500,000 people on a range of social media and digital technology platforms to make the event truly global in every sense.
Join us to celebrate the excellence of Australian science!
