Building EU-Australia Research synergies

The 3rd EU – Australia Research Infrastructure meetings and workshop in Canberra in November was an excellent success. Professor Octavi Quintana (Director for the European Research Area, Directorate General for Research & Innovation, European Commission) led the EU delegation. For the Sustainable Cities research theme, i am pleased to see more research collaborations building esp. the aim to establish open source sustainability cities research labs in key universities in Australia. I believe this will be an excellent way to build up the education and research collaborations between EU and Australia in Geospatial Science.

I would like to thank Prof. Chris Pettit and Australian Academy of Sciences for inviting me and Open Source Geospatial Lab at the University of Melbourne and the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) for funding my visit and meetings.
