CCD Stakeholders' Workshop: Sharing vision for future research impacts

29 April 2014, Macquarie University, Sydney


This workshop, to be held at the Macquarie University node of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD), is a special opportunity to further develop and enhance collaborative links between CCD researchers and the organisations that benefit from their work.

With a theme of "sharing vision for future research impacts", the day will commence with presentations by representatives from the CCD's key stakeholder organisations outlining how each organisation supports the community and highlighting focus areas for 2014 and beyond.

These presentations will be followed by interactive demonstrations by CCD researchers from all three of the CCD's nodes and tours of CCD and Cochlear facilities. There will also be opportunities for informal networking for researchers and stakeholders over the tea break, lunch and during drinks/canapés at the conclusion of the workshop.

Research facilities to be showcased include the KIT-Macquarie Brain Research Laboratory, the CCD's state-of-art Liquid Helium Recovery System, and the research and development laboratories at Cochlear Ltd.

The KIT-Macquarie Brain Research Laboratory, which includes two world-first magnetoencephalography (MEG) brain imaging systems - one for investigating cognitive processing in children, and a custom-designed MEG system that can be used with children and adults with Cochlear Implants - is one of the world's most advanced laboratories for brain research.
