About this event

Australia and Japan have developed a special and important relationship. In this Workshop, we seek to explore how international collaboration can be advanced between Australia and Japan in the domains of research, industry and innovation.

The Workshop is divided into two parts. The first half of the Workshop explores the importance of staff exchanges in its various forms, with a spotlight placed on the UniSA/Kanto Fellowship Program that was established in 2013 between the University of South Australia and the Kanto Sociological Society.

The second half of the Workshop focuses on the future of the Australia /Japan relationship in terms of industry, innovation and enterprise. Participants from both countries will discuss initiatives for university-industry-government collaboration between Australia and Japan.

Given the current context of COVID-19 travel restrictions, the Workshop will be delivered in a semi virtual format, with some participants attending in person in Adelaide, and overseas participants attending via Zoom. The event is being organized principally by the University of South Australia’s Dean of External Engagement, Professor Anthony Elliott, with generous support and funding provided by the Australia-Japan Foundation.

Participation is subject to approval by event organisers. Zoom details will be distributed to participants prior to event.
