Join the Symposium

FBNS 2021

CBNS invites you to join the very last Frontiers in Bio-Nano Science symposium on 19 February 2021, held at SAHMRI Adelaide.

Industry Speakers

Engage with industry

Keynote Speakers

Selected experts in science communication and outreach

Fellow Researchers

PhDs & ECRs only

Frontiers in Bio-Nano Science (FBNS) is for the next generation of pro-active scientists and innovators to discuss ideas, share their skills and grow their careers. For bio-nanoscience to succeed as a research tool, and to produce real industry innovation in Australia, integration of ideas and expertise from all CBNS disciplines is required.

After successful FBNS symposiums in 2018 and 2019, in FBNS 2021- The Final Edition, our very last FBNS symposium, we will focus on Communication for research, collaboration and innovation at 3 different levels: communications with public, scientists from other fields, and industry.

This one-day symposium will provide a relaxed and inspiring environment for CBNS EMCRs to engage in cross-disciplinary networking and collaboration. FBNS is supported by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology (CBNS)
