Tapas14UWA 2015 Research Tasting Night

What do we love about tapas? Perhaps it’s the small tastings that get our appetites working, usually in a convivial setting that encourages discussion, and this is just what our UWA research tasting night is all about.

In this special event, presented by the Institute of Advanced Studies and Research Services at The University of Western Australia, guests were served small talks from some of UWA’s most exciting researchers across a wide variety of disciplines – from rock art and music, development studies and law to cutting edge medicine, business and engineering - our intellectual tastings will provide food for thought.

The talks were filmed and can be viewed on our YouTube Channel. You can view the 2014 Research Tasting Night event here.
