Australian-German Networking Research Symposium 2018

The GOstralia! Research Centre in conjunction with Baden-Württemberg International is hosting the 3. Australian German Networking Research Symposium with the topic

How to build effective and sustainable research collaborations

on Friday, 23rd November 2018, from 10:30
at Sparkassenakademie Stuttgart.

The Australian-German research landscapes are increasingly growing together. The interest of both sides is very high to interconnect across all disciplines to finally tackle global challenges. It is essential to create research networks with strong and sustainable research infrastructures which benefit everyone. This year’s symposium wants to explore how to develop strong Australian-German research cooperation models in order to ensure long-term, efficient and successful partnerships.

The symposium also wants to be a platform to directly connect Australian and German researchers, since one of the key aspects of building strong research links always are and will be personal connections.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Stuttgart.
