Paul Mignone_Inside 3D Printing Melbourne

  1. 1. HACK AND SEEK! THE CHANGING APPROACH TO RESEARCH Paul .J Mignone ( @paulmignone) PhD Candidate & Research Community Coordinator Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering & ITS Research The University of Melbourne The Research Bazaar (www.3dprinting.edu.au)
  2. 2. RESEARCH BAZAAR? Empowering Researchers through: 1. Research apps in the cloud 2. Data sharing services 3. Parallel computing 4. Experimentation in emerging technologies (e.g. 3D Printing)
  3. 3. RESEARCH FUNDING The 2014 budget produced a ‘mixed bag’ of results: • Proposed $20bn medical research future fund • Proposed cuts to CSIRO, ANSTO, CRC’s etc. Gradual reduction of government funding for universities over the long term. Researchers will need to: • Consistently lobby the government and the public. • Find more efficiencies in how we do our research.
  4. 4. LOOK TO THE HACKERSPACE A community that works together to do more with less.
  5. 5. HACKER SUCCESS STORY: OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE • Open-source software models have resulted in savings of $60 billion per year to consumers worldwide1 • Significant learning curve, with many researchers being self taught. • Specific communities for researchers (e.g. software carpentry) teach basic software skills to researchers through boot camps and repositories.
