Congratulations to ACES Early Career Researcher Shaikh Faisal, ACES PhD student Aida Naseri and ANFF materials node staff member Gregory Ryder for their outstanding team performance in CSIRO’s ON Prime program.
Their team, NanoG, were awarded a facilitators performance bonus for their graphene-based coolant project. The bonus included $2000 of travel funding in recognition of their insight and engagement throughout the program, on top of the $3000 awarded to each participating team.
ON Prime is a national program that is open to researchers from Australian universities as well as research organisations, helping to empower them and attract resources needed to create impact. The purpose built program runs over eight weeks, which involves teams shaping their project, testing their ideas, sharpening their communication skills and importantly receiving mentoring, guidance and feedback from expert facilitators and leadership coaches. The team looks at connecting with potential beneficiaries, new partners and industry.
