The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) recently signed a new Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with The Australian National University (ANU), to host the NYSF and its activities until 2020.
NYSF Board Deputy Chair, Andrew Metcalfe AO said that the MoA cemented the existing strong and fruitful relationship between the NSYF and the ANU.
“The MoA allows for continued collaboration between our two organisations, offering young people from across Australia very unique access to the world-leading research and science facilities here at the ANU,” said Mr Metcalfe. “It also allows the NYSF Board to have more certainty for our operations, as we look to the organisation’s expansion in the coming years.”
Professor Kiaran Kirk, Dean of the ANU’s College of Medicine, Biology and Environment said, “NYSF has been associated with the ANU since it started in 1984, and the University as been hosting student visits here since then. The relationship with NYSF is an extremely important one for us. The NYSF office moved to be located on the ANU campus over ten years ago and we are delighted to have signed this agreement, committing to continuing the partnership for the next five years.”
