2nd Australia - Spain Researchers Forum: Light
The objective of the Australia-Spain Research Forums is to present to the wider community broad research topics which are of special interest to the Australian and Spanish societies.
The 1st Australia-Spain Research Forum was dedicated to Water (29-31 October 2015). It succeeded in attracting academic and industrial partners from both countries. Light is another broad area of active research interest for both Australia and Spain.
Thus, the Spanish Researchers in Australia – Pacific (SRAP) and Macquarie University with the support of the Embassy of Spain (Canberra) and the Cátedra Instituto Cervantes (Instituto Cervantes Australia Academic Forum) have partnered together to organise the 2nd Australia – Spain Research Forum: Light that will take place at Macquarie University on 12 – 13 December 2016.
The Spanish Researchers in Australia – Pacific (SRAP) is a non-for-profit organization established in 2014 to promote networking and collaboration between Spanish Researchers working in Asia – Pacific; support Australian research institutes and universities to understand and engage with Spanish Universities; and to assist Asia – Pacific Researchers to collaborate with Spanish Researchers. The Association was created with the assistance and support of the Embassy of Spain (Canberra), the Institute Cervantes (Sydney) and the Fundación Consejo España-Australia. The SRAP currently has 45 researchers working in 15 major universities and research centres across Asia-Pacific.
The Association has direct collaboration with a number of bodies including:
• Embassy of Spain (Canberra)
