CSAR exists to encourage an appreciation of the application of research through lectures, visits, the CSAR PhD student awards and outreach to schools. We make time around these for conversation and interaction, providing excellent opportunities to meet people, make new friends, expand horizons, and network.

Members are a broad mix of people, from students and researchers to entrepreneurs and business professionals, from those still at school to those already retired - all from a wide range of backgrounds. We welcome new members to our lectures and other events, and would encourage you join CSAR online in advance of the event you wish to attend. If you’d like to try a lecture or two before you consider an annual subscription, please select ‘Pay-As-You-Go’ or one of the concessionary memberships for which there are no upfront fees. For further details, please see all membership options.
