The Westmead Redevelopment project team were on-hand at the Westmead Research Hub’s student open day to engage students about future education, training, research (ETR) and employment opportunities.

Members of the project team chatted to students and staff who attended the event, promoting the project’s ongoing ETR work and its Work Out West campaign, aimed at attracting Westmead’s future workforce. Visitors to the project’s event stand included Western Sydney University students Helen Wong and Natalie Chew.

Both women were interested to hear about the new hospital building, due for completion in 2020. They were also excited about the Innovation Centre and the University of Sydney’s partnership with the project, which includes investment for 1.5 floors within the new hospital building.

Westmead Research Hub program manager James Linton said it was great to have the redevelopment team on-board.

“It’s always great to have the redevelopment team join us at student event to share information about how physical spaces are being transformed across Westmead,” he said.

"These physical changes mean an improved student experience as many students access more than one facility across the precinct.”

Students who missed the event can head to the Westmead Research Hub website, which includes a searchable directly of current research projects, including opportunities for student participation -
