UCNISS has been talking with the newest Australian Football League franchise for a couple of months now and a couple of weeks ago the two signed an MOU. I have been lucky enough to sit on some of the talks with Team GWS. There is some potential for some interesting work and some great opportunities for students to get involved. Hopefully this should start a great relationship, we will see how it progresses. As a first step, they need 5000 members to sign up to the ACT4GWS cause.
Check out the video below to see some of our laboratory facilities in action.
From the Monitor:
The Greater Western Sydney AFL team and the University of Canberra will work together to develop and train athletes, conduct sports research and offer internships to sports studies students under a new deal.
The two organisations have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on research to promote athlete development and sport. The agreement will also see the University and GWS explore opportunities for a shared elite athlete facility on campus.
