Are you interested in developing new research skills? Would you like to meet researchers from other universities who may be researching in the same field or using the same tools? Are you a Higher Degree Research (HDR) student or early career researcher looking to find or grow a community of peers?   

If so, ResBazQld is for you! 

What is ResBazQld? 

Organised by a team of volunteers from universities in south-east Queensland—including Griffith University—the Research Bazaar (ResBaz) is a skill- and community-building festival.  

This must-see festival is a highly participatory event where researchers from many different disciplines can learn, share knowledge and skills, meet people and—most importantly—have fun!  

This year’s event will be the fifth annual ResBaz held in Queensland.  

Where and when will events be held? 

From 24 – 26 November 2021, the University of Queensland will host three days of in-person, COVID-safe talks, workshops, panels, social activities and skill-up opportunities. 

On 26 November 2021, Griffith University will host a one-day satellite event at our Gold Coast campus. 

Why should I attend ResBazQld? 

ResBazQld is a great space where HDR students and early career researchers come together to learn and discuss the latest in digital research tools and e-research.   

All kinds of workshops, from web scraping to machine learning and software containers, will be offered. The keynote address will be delivered by Professor Hugh Possingham, Queensland Chief Scientist and renowned ecologist.  

How can I register? 

Registrations for ResBazQld will open in October.
