On 8 September 2023, UNSW SMaRT Centre Director, Professor Veena, will deliver a keynote speech at the 2023 Health Beyond Research & Innovation Showcase.
She will share her vision for a sustainable future, highlight the importance of creating a circular economy and how using waste as a resource - including various UNSW SMaRT Centre innovations - must be at the centre of innovative decarbonisation efforts.
The Health Beyond Research & Innovation Showcase is an annual event hosted by the South Western Sydney Local Health District where allied health professionals, nurses, doctors and researchers in South West Sydney present abstracts across the disciplines of health service research, cancer, community health, clinical medicine, biomedical research, mental health and many other areas.
This follows SMaRT partnering in the “Up-Masking” initiative of the Greater Cities Commission (GCC) and the Western Sydney Local Health District and local schools to demonstrate remanufacturing and decarbonisation potential of used face masks and personal protective equipment to prevent it becoming waste.
