Good morning. I am pleased to share that the University has been awarded a contract by the State Government to establish a new Wave Energy Centre in Albany.
The Centre will put WA at the forefront of offshore renewable energy and research technology. The $3.75 million in funding will help bring together more than 30 researchers to build understanding and increased knowledge of renewable wave energy, strengthening our position as a global leader in offshore technology. You can read more below.
Congratulations to Team UWA on a strong performance at the 2017 University Games held in hot conditions on the Gold Coast. Our men’s beach volleyball and women’s hockey teams triumphed with national championships and 16 students won Green and Gold awards; this is a wonderful effort, well done.
