Ten Australian early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) have taken part in an innovative trilateral symposium with young scientists from the US and Indonesia.

The Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium in Indonesia brought together 80 outstanding young scientists to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in a broad range of disciplines, including human creativity (cave painting), infectious diseases (bio-control), astrophysics (compact objects), marine microbiology, nanomaterials from nature and health informatics.

The symposium aimed to remove communication barriers between disciplines and encourage collaborations between some of the world's best young scientists.

Dr Judy Hart, Lecturer at UNSW’s School of Materials Science and Engineering, led the Australian delegation. Academy Vice-President, Dr TJ Higgins FAA FTSE, also attended the symposium and presented an overview of Australian funding, accessible by international researchers, to all delegates.

The Academy worked closely with the Australian Embassy in Jakarta to stage this symposium, as well as a half-day workshop at which Australian EMCRs showcased their research to Indonesian EMCRs in similar research fields.
