MINERALS IN A SUSTAINABLE WORLD
THE NEXT GENERATION OF IDEAS AND DISCOVERIES

The Next Generation Resources Conference is a global online event for postgraduate research students across all disciplines relating to mineral resources, from exploration through to end product.

It will showcase a variety of types of virtual contributions, including pre-recorded short presentations succinctly highlighting the participants’ research, as well as written submissions. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The conference will feature a competition to identify the best student presentation, where last year’s winning student was awarded an international trip to the four partner universities located in Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and South Africa. This year we hope to offer similar prizes and opportunities.

The Next Generation Resources 2020 conference is organised by a committee of postgraduates hailing from the University of Queensland (Australia), the University of British Columbia (Canada), the University of Exeter (UK) and the University of Cape Town (South Africa).
