Events and activities

Conferences. ACUR holds an undergraduate research conference in an Australasian university annually. Each year the conference is organized by a team of staff and students in a different university.

Posters in Parliament. ACUR also organizes an exhibition of undergraduate research in Parliament House, Canberra and/or the New Zealand Parliament (the Beehive) from time to time in order to publicise undergraduate research in the wider community.

Newsletter. In addition, ACUR publishes URNA (Undergraduate Research News Australasia), a newsletter containing information, events, and initiatives in undergraduate research likely to be of interest to Australasia. It is currently produced twice a year in the Learning and Teaching Centre at Macquarie University.
