Summary of Commitment

Your student or staff member is seeking your approval to attend an in-person 2-day hackathon event, the Better Futures Innovation Challenge, on 19-20 March at RMIT Storey Hall (Melbourne), organised by a group of five Centres of Excellence (FLEET, EQUS, OzGrav, TMOS and Exciton).

If their team’s idea is shortlisted during the event, your student/staff member will be encouraged (but not required) to spend up to one day per week for a period of six weeks following the event to develop, prototype and test their idea.

This event should be considered as valuable research collaboration, networking, professional development and skills training opportunity and part of the regular commitment and benefit of being a researcher in a Centre of Excellence.
