2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

We teach how to write clearly and succinctly, without sacrificing scientific accuracy. We teach you how to get your thoughts down clearly and how increase your efficiency as a writer. We teach how to write and design documents according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g. monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project problem that needs to be solved.

The Standard 2 Day Workshop

The writing workshops are usually presented as The Standard 2 Day Workshop. The modules cover all aspects of writing from discussing common problems, recommending efficient practices, improving writing style, reworking sentence structure and paragraph structure, and analysing section and whole report structure. We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review techniques.

The Phillip Clarkson Essay Prize 2015 - CILTA

CILTA NSW Section

The Phillip Clarkson Essay Prize 2015

Innovation in Transport and Logistics is the life blood of our industry.   As a rapidly evolving industry, we need to understand  at all levels how new innovations will help shape our future and we need to prepare for whatever changes may occur.

To mark Phillip Clarkson’s outstanding contribution to CILTA over the past 7 decades, CILTA’s NSW section is delighted to invite papers from individuals discussing the consequences of future transport innovations.  In particular we are keen to review papers which discuss :

  • Passenger transport innovations which may include issues of accessibility, sustainability, environment, economics and regulation and control
  • Transportation management innovations - freight and passenger transport across all modes and including both operations and infrastructure
  • Industrial logistics innovations - supply chain management, inventory, procurement and their underpinning technology

Energy Training and Capacity Building Programme


International Energy Agency - Training


Background

An ever-growing function of the IEA is to share knowledge and best practice in the field of energy globally. The IEA has carried out training activities since its creation over 35 years ago, starting with the Emergency Response Exercises (ERE) for its member countries to prepare them for oil supply disruptions. Over the decades, the scope for training has broadened to include energy statistics, modelling, technology, policy recommendations and subjects of similar interest. With the globalisation of energy markets and the consequences of climate change, the IEA has intensified its work with non-member countries, especially in capacity building.
