2016 UWA Research Tasting Night –An Intellectual Tapas

tapasOur popular Intellectual Tapas Night returned for a fourth year!

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, guests were served small talks from some of UWA’s most exciting researchers across a wide variety of disciplines.
