Australia–China workshop on measurement challenges for electrical energy security

5-8 September 2017 | Canberra and Sydney, Australia

An energy measurement roadmap will be one of the outcomes of the workshop.

The electrical energy industries in Australia and China rely on measurement science and technology to solve current and emerging challenges. These needs are only expected to increase in the future.

This workshop will explore these challenges, showcase scientific achievements, and formulate a roadmap of future requirements for measurement research in electrical energy security. It is anticipated that the roadmap will inform future research project opportunities to address industry needs.

The workshop is co-organised by the National Measurement Institute, Australia (NMIA), the National Institute of Metrology (NIM), China and the Australian Academy of Science, and supported by the Australia–China Science and Research Fund (ACSRF).

Expressions of interest to attend the workshop should be submitted by 30 June.

Australia–India Early- and Mid-Career Fellowships for 2018–19

The Academy invites Australian early- and mid-career researchers to apply for the Australia–India Strategic Research Fund Early- and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Fellowships 2018–19. These EMCR Fellowships provide support of up to $40,500 for Australian researchers to travel to India and work with leading researchers at major Indian science and technology organisations for three to nine months.

The fund that supports the fellowships is a platform for bilateral collaboration in science jointly managed and funded by the governments of Australia and India.

The fellowships are open to Australian researchers from the public, not-for-profit and commercial sectors to support research and initiate or consolidate collaboration with a leading-edge Indian host organisation.

The closing date for submissions is Monday 11 September. More information on the fellowships.

Invitation to join the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Alumni Association in Australia (JSPSAAA)

With support from the Australian Government the Academy has assisted in the establishment of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Alumni Association in Australia (JSPSAAA) with the purpose to engage Australian scientists with past, current or possible future collaborative links with Japan to enhance the strong bilateral science and research relationship between the two countries. 

Regular membership is available to all Australian citizens and permanent residents who are or were recipients of JSPS Fellowships or other grants supported by the JSPS (for example, STA). Honorary membership may be granted to persons who have made significant contributions toAustralia’s academic collaboration with Japan and JSPS activities in the AUSTRALIA. Honorary members must be nominated by a member of the JSPSAAA and approved by the Executive Committee.
