Events at Design Factory

Public Lecture by Dr. Markus Nordberg

We are launching our Research Insight presentation series with a public lecture by Dr. Markus Nordberg.

Research Insights is a monthly presentation series hosted by Design Factory Melbourne (DFM) aimed at fostering interaction and collaboration between academics, students, and industry.

Presentations are informal and collegial – join us at the Firestation to hear what others are working on, or share something of your own!

Dr. Markus Nordberg is the Head of Resources Development and the Director of IdeasSquare both at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. He is visiting DFM and will discuss how science and technology translation can make an impact on society. Markus will be talking about the innovations and disruptions that have come from CERN as a ‘side product’ of development of the Large Hadron Collider.
