The seminar was a valuable opportunity for both new and experienced RAOs to network with one another, gather useful knowledge and hear the latest updates from senior staff at NHMRC and ARC.

The seminar was held at the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra over two days, with NHMRC hosting the first day (Monday 14 November) and ARC hosting the second day (Tuesday 15 November).
