This special cocktail event will celebrate the launch of the WA Cook Society, showcasing the important cultural and business relationship shared between our state and the United Kingdom.

At the event you will have an opportunity to learn more about the WA Cook Society, particularly its role in fostering business relationships, along with how you can get involved in a range of activities run by other Australian branches of the Cook Society.

The evening will feature a special guest presentation on the ‘Square Kilometre Array Radio Telescope’ project by Professor Peter Quinn, the Director of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (SKART). The SKART is exciting infrastructure project, which involves WA and the UK.

In addition, we will be launching an exciting grant program, which will offer young UK Radio Astrometry talent an opportunity to come to WA to assist with the SKART project and to further their education at the University of Western Australia.
