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. For those attending, we’d be most grateful if you could take a few moments to complete our registration form via the links below, for catering purposes.

Dear SRAP members, The event NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK will take place on the 4th of October at 6.00 PM at the Instituto Cervantes in Sydney. A group of Spanish researchers will present their research, with plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion. This event was scheduled initially for the 18 August 2017. Due to the terrorist attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils, the Government of Spain declared three days of National Mourning. Therefore, all the events scheduled for those days were cancelled as a sign of respect and solidarity with all the victims. RSVP: https://sciencecervantes.eventbrite.com.au We hope to see you all at the Cervantes Institute (4 October at 6.00 PM). Kind regards, Oscar on behalf of the SRAP.

SRAP-Cervantes Institute (4-10-2017, 6pm): National Science Week


Prof Montserrat Vilà, research professor at Estación Biológica de Doñana (EBD-CSIC) in Seville (Spain) will give a presentation on the impacts of biological invasions with special emphasis on a global analysis of the ecological effects of alien plants on native species and ecosystems in the introduced range. The talk will also describe how impacts are quantified, as well some ways to conduct risk analysis of invasion in Europe. Biological invasions occur when species are introduced by humans beyond their natural dispersal ranges, establishing and spreading in the region. Some impacts can affect socioeconomic sectors such as forestry, agriculture or public health. From the management and policy perspective it is important to identify which invasive species are causing, or have the potential to cause, major impacts. A panel of experts, will lead an insightful discussion with Prof Vila on the impacts of biological invasions in the Australian context. For more information and to register: http://bit.ly/2uh6EJ7
