Event | HPRnet Symposium 2018

The 2018 HPRnet Symposium was held on 28 November at Curtin University in Perth, in conjunction with the Defence Human Sciences Symposium.

The Defence Human Sciences Symposium (DHSS) is the principal Australian forum for those interested in the application of human sciences research to enhance Defence capability.

HPRnet is a broader enabler that bridges these and other human sciences communities. HPRnet is an established network of universities that draws together multidisciplinary teams from around the country who are co-invested in the delivery of significant outcomes for Defence, underpinned by world class science. In addition to specific outcomes, the network aims to establish a broader national capability that has the breadth and capacity to meet Defence's needs in the future.

The annual HPRnet Symposium provides an opportunity for members of the network, and those with an interest in human performance, to hear the latest developments in human performance research for the military.
