The Australasian Society for Trenchless Technology (ASTT) will once again offer up to 10 utility and council scholarships for attendance at No-Dig Down Under (NDDU) 2022.
The scholarships will allow key members of Australasian utilities and councils to attend the event with reduced costs and aims to bring more employees from these organisations to the event, thereby increasing the knowledge of trenchless technology.
NDDU is the southern hemisphere’s only large-scale conference and exhibition dedicated to trenchless technology. Trenchless technology is important for installing new services, as well as rehabilitating and maintaining existing pipelines and infrastructure, without having to dig multiple trenches, disturbing traffic, business and residential locations.
With major utilities located underground and requiring ongoing upkeep and extension, No-Dig Down Under is a crucial event for local government representatives and those involved in planning decisions for major infrastructure projects.
The following scholarships are available: five conference registrations for New South Wales-based utility or council representatives and five conference registrations and complimentary (accommodation during the event for interstate-based utility or council representatives).
The recipients of the scholarships also will be offered the opportunity to be interviewed for Trenchless Australasia, the official publication of ASTT. In addition to this, they will also be profiled in the October issue of the magazine, the official conference edition.
Eligible representatives can submit their application via an online form, which requires contact information and a series of general questions. Applications close Friday 20th May 2022.
