About Conference

Welcome to the HDR Conference 2024, where purpose meets passion and research transforms lives!

Our theme, “Purposeful Research – Making a Change in Real Life,” embodies our commitment to empowering future changemakers. This conference provides a platform for HDR and honours students to showcase their research, learn from peers, and engage in discussions on how to create lasting real-world impact through their work.

With a focus on inspiring deep reflection and practical strategies for achieving real-world change, our event aims to spark innovation and drive action among researchers. By bringing together students, faculty, and the wider community, we foster an environment where ideas flourish, networks form, and potential collaborations emerge. Research students will have the opportunity to effectively explain and promote aspects of their work and to hone their presentation skills.

Together, we’ll explore how research can be purposeful, passion-driven, and truly transformative.
