Today, Dr Christian Criado-Pérez (UNSW) -SRAP Industry Liaison- and Dr Ángel López-Sánchez (Macquarie University) -SRAP President- have participated in the networking event with La Cámara (The Spanish-Australian Chamber of Commerce), today, Wednesday 9th August 2023, entitled “Harbour Bridge Networking“.
This networking event, jointly organised by La Camara & Fever, was another excellent opportunity to meet with people who are interested in SRAP activities and research, as well as explore further collaborations between academia and industry.
In this event, the President of La Cámara, Sylvia Fernandez, confirmed to participate in the panel discussion about connecting academic research with industry and science diplomacy that we will have in our 2023 SRAP Research Forum “A Connected World” at Macquarie University (Sydney) on Friday, 3rd Nov. We also had the opportunity to meet and talk with Rod Noel, Event Manager and Marketing Specialist of La Cámara, who show his excitement about the new collaborations that SRAP are starting with some of the industries of La Cámara. We all discussed organising a joint SRAP – La Cámara event early in 2024.
We also enjoyed the photo exhibition with the best photographic works by the world-renown American photographer, freelancer, and photojournalist Steve McCurry. His Afghan Girl, of a girl with piercing green eyes, has appeared on the cover of National Geographic several times.
