Partners for progress
A QUT study of two interrelated Twitter hashtag campaigns in relation to the Victorian Premier Dan Andrews’ handling of the COVID-19 second wave found the activity was driven by a “small, hyper-partisan core of highly active participants” and not bot accounts.
Scientists frequently look at how molecules behave in nature to help them design chemical processes, and that’s what QUT and Ghent University researchers did to create a green light-stabilised 3D polymer structure that unfolds itself when left in darkness.
