WORKSHOP: Building on S&T partnering

Tuesday 23 November 13:15-16:30 room C4


The main aim of the workshop is to increase international S&T partnering, in particular building upon the experience gained in EU-Australia collaboration in Science & Technology.

This also includes the promotion of Australian capabilities and opportunities for international collaboration with the EU in general. It is hoped that this will provide useful insights for other international S&T partnerships. The workshop will give the opportunity to an Australian delegation to meet EU counterparts with a view to developing joint proposals for submission to the EU’s IST programme. Opening presentations will be given by Commission and Australian officials followed by presentations by European organisations participating in FPIV projects that have Australian partners. It is envisaged that there will be presentations by up to six selected members of the Australian delegation, describing their technologies, methodologies and expertise in order to give an opportunity for European attendees to see how they can possibly collaborate with the Australians.
