On the 25th of November, 2016, the German-Australian Networking Research Symposium will take place, in cooperation with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), and organised by GOstralia! Research Center and Baden-Württemberg International. The theme is: “Research Landscapes and Technology Transfer in Australia and Baden-Württemberg – Current Projects and Perspectives for Research Collaboration.”
The symposium focuses on existing research structures and research funding programmes in Australia and Baden-Württemberg. Particular attention will be paid to cooperation between research and industry. In four case studies, successful cooperation models between research facilities in Australia and Baden-Württemberg and companies will be presented. Following on from this, the discussion on the bilateral research and technology transfer will be continued and developed. In addition, the symposium will be a platform for establishing new research links between universities, research institutions and companies in Australia and Baden-Württemberg.
Following the symposium, a “Matchmaking Forum” will be held which will provide an opportunity for individual meetings to develop cooperation. Against the background of the 59 recommendations of the Australia-Germany Advisory Group (AGAG), the symposium is a further step towards a strong German-Australian partnership in the fields of science, education and research.
The symposium is being held along with the Down Under Trade Fair – “Career, Study and Research in Australia and New Zealand.”
