Australia-ASEAN Virtual Seminar Series: Personal Protective Equipment for COVID-19

Through a series of three online seminars and a PPE network, this project will use a panel of experts from the region to share technical knowledge and experiences related to face mask and gown testing and manufacturing with universities and industry.

It is expected that participants will be from universities, manufacturers, health and scientific organisations interested in face masks, surgical gowns and PPE manufacturing more generally. This project will initiate dialogue between Australian and ASEAN researchers and industry through the sharing of knowledge in the symposia and the subsequent networking linkages.
