A recent meeting strengthened and developed collaboration in science and innovation between Australia and Korea, including establishing productive relationships and improving awareness of collaboration opportunities.
The Academy participated in the third Australia–Korea Joint Committee on Science and Technology meeting in Seoul at the invitation of the Australian Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. The Australian delegation was led by Mr Gino Grassia from the Department, with Professor Richard Hartley FAA representing the Academy.
Both countries presented their science and technology policies, with discussions on possible cooperation in the areas of Li-batteries, renewable energy, digital media design and computer vision, and 3D bio-printing.
The Academy was grateful for the opportunity to participate in this key meeting. The next joint meeting is expected to take place in Australia in 2019.
