The Graduate Research School (GRS) and Industry and PhD: Research Engagement Program (iPREP WA) at Edith Cowan University (ECU) hosted a movie and networking night ‘in the pines’ at ECU Joondalup to celebrate our PhD and industry partnerships on Friday 5th April.
The movie night started with a networking event where the attendees (including ECU PhD candidates and current iPREP WA industry partners and other supporting partners) met, chatted and enjoyed food and drinks.

During the networking event, Professor Joe Luca, Dean of the GRS at ECU welcomed the attendees, stating that “iPREP WA provides a great opportunity for industry supporters and partners to meet and network with current PhD candidates at ECU. "It is really important that ECU researchers find out what’s happening in industry, and Industry find out what interesting research is happening at ECU” he added.
It is noteworthy that approximately 50 industry partners, PhD candidates and their guests attended the iPREP WA Movie Night at the Joondalup Pines. Industry partners included AutiSense, America Chamber of Commerce, Adarsh Australia, Perth Region Tourism Organisation, and the Town of Bassendean.
