About GEMS

GEMS by Sativus is a series of courses designed to help improve the skillset and capability of scientists, researchers and their managers who work, or plan to work, within the Australian research, development, extension and adoption (RDE&A) sectors. The aim is to help scientists Grow, Evolve, Mentor and Succeed.

The GEMS flagship course, Essential Skills for Scientists (ESS), is creating scientists that have the project management and science communication skills they need to do great science that is accessible, by providing necessary skills that are not traditionally taught to scientists.
