October 2014

Rosanne Hunt

Later this month we will recognise some of UTS's most inspirational alumni at the 2014 Alumni Awards gala dinner and you're invited to celebrate. The dinner will be held on Thursday 23 October - I hope you can join us.

You're also invited to tour our new underground Library Retrieval System - an automated book storage and retrieval facility operated by robotic cranes. Book your spot now.

Voting opens today for the Google Impact Challenge - your vote could help UTS researchers secure a $500,000 grant to turn their ideas into a solution for food and water security across the globe. Vote now.

I hope you enjoy this edition.

With thanks,

Rosanne Hunt
Deputy Director, Alumni and Communications
