RiAus is committed to the principle that appreciation of science is fundamental to the culture of each citizen, taking its place alongside art, music, theatre and an understanding of civic responsibility.
To that end, it facilitates diverse forums for scientists, engineers, students, educators, media, business, government, industry and the community to learn about and discuss the promises and challenges of science in shaping our future.
RiAus aims to democratise science by providing diverse forums for our brightest science researchers and educators to promote and celebrate their work, passions and knowledge within the broader community.
In addition to engaging the general community, RiAus seeks to encourage young people to discover the opportunities in science, and assists educators to provide stimulating and sustainable learning experiences.
Housed at the Science Exchange in Adelaide, RiAus will have a national presence with non-exclusive special relationships in each State. Recognising the intrinsic international nature of science, RiAus will also pursue appropriate international linkages.
RiAus doesn't have any testimonials yet.
