Dear SRAP members, It is my pleasure to invite you to the 3rd Australia-Spain Research Forum: Air [https://airforum2017.srap-ieap.org], organised by the Association of Spanish Researchers in the Australia-Pacific (SRAP). The yearly Forums organised by the SRAP are intended as an opportunity for Spanish and Australian researchers to meet, with the aims of involving as many different agents as possible, improving professional and academic connections between them, and promoting the scientific culture and knowledge to the general public. This year the Forum will be divided between Sydney and Canberra on the 3rd and 6th of November respectively. This year the selected topic for the Forum is Air. In the Sydney event we have put together a diverse range of distinguished speakers to talk about the relevance of hearing and communication, climate change and air quality, society, air industry and culture. The Sydney event will also have a very interesting round table about human overpopulation and human’simpact on Earth. In the Canberra event, the topic of the Forum will be focused on Science Diplomacy and the European Research as a single market and its implications for Australia. Please find attached the program of the Forum with more detailed information. Anyone with interest in the topic is more than welcome to attend.
