The association Spanish Researchers in Australia-Pacific (SRAP) organizes annually the “Australia-Spain Research Forum”, a multidisciplinary conference aimed at the wider community, to highlight Australia-Spain research and present broad research and cultural topics which are of special interest to the Australian and Spanish societies.
SRAP promotes and supports networking between Australia-Pacific and Spanish research institutes and universities and provides assistance and networking support for Spanish researchers in Australia-Pacific. The Australia-Spain Research Forum is our main networking event, putting together Australian and Spanish researchers in multiple disciplines, as well as between universities, research centres, industries, diplomats and even artists who have an interest in scientific research.

In 2022 SRAP organized the 8th Australia-Spain Research Forum entitled “A Digital World“, with the aim of showing “how the digital world is all around us”. It was hosted at The Australian Hearing Hub, Macquarie University (Sydney, NSW) on Friday 25th of November 2022 with the option of attending virtually or in-person.
The 2022 edition of the SRAP Forum was sponsored by the Spanish Embassy in Australia, the Australia-Spain Council Foundation, the Ramón Areces Foundation, Instituto Cervantes Sídney and Indra Australia – to whom we are extremely grateful for their continuous support.
The 2020 Australia-Spain Research Forum “Big Data” and the 2021 Australia-Spain Research Forum “A Collaborative World” were successful not only because of the expertise of the speakers and the very interesting talks but also because on-line participation was possible, with all the presentations available in the SRAP YouTube Channel.
This 2022 SRAP Australia-Spain Research Forum delivered an exciting program about how the digital world is all around us. We discussed three “Big questions” with key experts speakers:
- artificial Intelligence,
- block chain and digital security,
- and virtual reality,
followed by a series of applied talks with concrete applications of the digital world in Astronomy, soil mapping, education, art and design, and oceans.
We also hosted a roundtable about “is living in a digital world good or bad for humankind?” to trigger the conversations and discussions about what good things have brought the digitalisation… and what bad things!
During the breaks we will have demos of a Virtual Reality system, thanks to “The Future of Meetings” and CSIRO.
We closed the 2022 SRAP Australia-Spain Research Forum with the announcement of the winner of the new SRAP-frA Early Career Research Award and the launching of the PhD Cotutelle Program between Macquarie University, SRAP and Instituto Cervantes with two Spanish universities.
I would like to express my gratitude to all the participants for their exceptional presentations and valuable contributions. Thanks to their efforts, the 8th Australia-Spain Research Forum organized by SRAP has been another success. I extend my sincere appreciation to the Spanish Embassy in Australia, the Australia-Spain Council Foundation, the Ramón Areces Foundation, the Instituto Cervantes Sídney and Indra Australia for their unwavering support. Lastly, I want to express my sincere thanks to the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for their outstanding work in arranging the 2022 SRAP Forum. It has been a privilege to collaborate with all of you!
