Research Bites: Ibero-American Researchers in Australia

Event in English

Registration required at Eventbrite.

Research Bites are periodical meetings organised by the Spanish Researchers Asia-Pacific Association (SRAP) that aim to facilitate the exchange of local experiences and transfer knowledge among Spanish-speaking researchers based in Australia. This event is not only addressed to researchers but also to people interested in all fields of science. These informal gatherings have been previously organised in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Hobart to promote social networking in the Spanish and Ibero-American scientific community. This session will include short presentations by Ibero-American and Spanish researchers followed by a Q&A and drinks and snacks.
