The CNBP continued to build on its close industry link with Olympus Australia, recently hosting James Bowe (Director of Olympus Australia), and several of his colleagues (Eisuke Arinobe and Kim Everuss) at the Centre’s RMIT research node in Melbourne.
Invited as guest speaker for the RMIT School of Applied Sciences 2015 Awards Ceremony, James Bowe took the time to meet with CNBP RMIT team members prior to the event and was given a tour of the new CNBP office and laboratory space which is currently under construction.
The visit demonstrated the closeness between the two organisations, with both keen to explore and develop potential collaboration opportunities.
The Awards Ceremony also proved to be a successful evening for the Centre, with CNBP student Ashleigh Heffernan recognised twice for his achievements. He accepted the Nanotechnology Award for Physics as well as the Walter Boas Memorial Prize which recognises creativity in third year physics study.
