Good morning. I am pleased to announce that UWA will be the lead university in the new Western Australia Life Sciences Precinct which will bring together researchers and industry partners to generate new business opportunities in medicine, health, agriculture and biodiversity.
Good afternoon. Yesterday the State Education Minister, the Hon Sue Ellery, other WA Vice-Chancellors and industry partners, joined a roundtable discussion on the importance of education to the State’s future.
Good afternoon. Perth’s CBD was filled with song on Friday night when around 1000 singers and musicians, many from UWA, gathered to raise awareness of homelessness in Western Australia. This is an example of how universities can bring a community together and offer a voice to important issues; congratulations to Professor Alan Lourens and the Conservatorium of Music for bringing this issue forward in such an engaging way.
