The Australian Academy of Science, in conjunction with the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) organised the Eighth Annual Australia-China symposium on science and technology: Green materials and recycling economy, 5-9 November 2011. The event was arranged on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR) and the Ministry for Science and Technology of China and was held in Shanghai and Suzhou.

The Symposium included 41 Australian and Chinese researchers and was jointly opened by the three Academy Presidents, Professor Chunli Bai (CAS), Professor Robin Batterham (ATSE) and Professor Suzanne Cory from the Academy of Science.

The workshop participants explored collaborative opportunities during plenary discussions and presentations in three concurrent workshops:

  • Biomedical materials and devices – the development and handling of biomaterials and devices, especially at the nanoscale
  • Recycling hard and liquid waste – initiatives to recycle hard and liquid waste from industry, including mining, and
  • Materials for clean energy – new materials in battery, solar and other clean energy technologies.

The symposium was complemented with site visits at the Shanghai Light Source, the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute (SARI) and the Shanghai Institute of Ceramics (SICCAS).

The Academies Leadership Meeting was held prior to the symposium and involved the Presidents of the three Academies.
