Science and Technology Australia host a two-day “Science meets Parliament” event in March every year, where decision makers and professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) meet to share their insights with others including Members of Parliament.  

The Institute of Australian Geographers sends two delegates each year.  If you are interested in applying to be a delegate, please send a brief statement (no more than one page) addressing the eligibility criteria and conditions.

Selection criteria:

Please submit no more than one page outlining your response to these criteria and a budget for reasonable expenses by no later than 1st December to the immediate Past President, Steve Turton, on s.turton@cqu.edu.au.
