Level 8, Room 801-801, 12 Wally's Walk


Corporate Engagement and the Defence Science and Technology Group (DST), in the lead up to the launch of the Research Network for Undersea Decision Superiority, invites you to attend a seminar presented by renowned experts in Human Factors research. The speakers will provide their perspectives on the latest research directions for human performance in the increasingly complex world of Defence, a rich source of interesting real-world problems. These problems are challenging and have a material impact on the lives of the men and women serving in our Defence Forces.

Facilitated by Dr David Gamble, from DST’s Maritime Division, this seminar is not to be missed for researchers, academics and those interested in learning more about the human element of the Defence Forces.

Refreshments and a light snack will be provided.
