The Future of Battery Power

This webinar provides a deeper understanding of how sustainable energy is central to a green economy. You’ll gain insights from a neutron instrument scientist from ANSTO, a mission lead in critical energy metals from CSIRO, and the executive manager of Cobalt Blue. You’ll explore areas such as the efficient and sustainable extraction of minerals for battery-ready products and storage, neutron-level testing to understand and improve on the function of materials central to energy storage and use, finding Australia’s competitive advantage in the growing battery industry, and the opportunity to establish recycling and re-use facilities to meet domestic needs and those of the Asia-Pacific region.

Advanced technologies underpinning the Space Technologies

Space represents a new frontier for science, research and innovation in Australia, as well as the opportunity for significant economic development. Australia is well-placed to capitalise on this growing industry and employment boom. Innovation in space technology can support agriculture, communications, defence, disaster management, the environment and more, while improving the lives of everyday citizens. 

ANSTO has diverse capabilities and expertise in many areas, including advanced materials, radiation detection and dosimetry (the impact of galactic cosmic radiation on human cells), the characterisation of planetary materials and advanced manufacturing, which can support space research and development. 

Meet four space industry experts and hear how researchers, government and industry are collaborating to ensure Australia secures a podium finish in the space race.

Nuclear medicine delivering improvements in diagnosis and treatment of cancer

Although many people might know that ANSTO produces nuclear medicines, including the most commonly used diagnostic imaging agent, they may not be aware of the other research and development activities in nuclear medicine that benefit human health.

World-leading nuclear science, combined with expertise of ANSTO staff and collaborators in academia and industry, are at the cutting-edge of investigations into the origin of diseases, like cancer. State-of-the-art nuclear research is finding improved methods to detect, diagnose and monitor the progression of disease and develop therapies to treat disease.

At this free online event you’ll meet experts who are at the forefront of nuclear medicine and research and who are working to save lives.
