Bilateral workshops and symposia

Bilateral collaboration is promoted, for example, by joint workshops and symposia on common thematic areas of interest such as biomedicine, nanoscience & nanotechnology, applications of synchrotron radiation, advanced technologies for renewable energy, Earth observation & remote sensing, oncology, space science & technology, biotechnology, agriculture, nuclear physics, astrophysics, pure & applied mathematics and applications of advanced characterization techniques for the preservation of cultural heritage. The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science as well as other national research organizations such as ANSTO (Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organization), CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization), the Australian Synchrotron, ANN (the Australian Nanotechnology Network), the Australian Academy of Science, GRDC (tha Grains Research Development Corporation), Wine Australia, ASI (the Italian Space Agency), CNR (the Italian National Research Council), INAF (the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics), INFN (the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics),ICTP (the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste), Australian universities together with Italian universities and Australian State governments have co-financed, together with this Embassy, most of these events. 

Italy - Australia Science and Innovation Forum, Shine Dome, Australian Academy of Science, Canberra 15 May 2017

Seventh meeting of 'Italian Scientists Down Under', Brisbane 23 March 2017. Organized by the Scientific Attaché, Embassy of Italy, in collaboration with the Queensland University of Technology.

Roundtable of Italian women scientists operating in Australia, in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Culture, Sydney 9th March 2017. In Italy and Australia, women comprise a significant percentage of PhD graduates and early career researchers in science. However, with regard to the presence of women in senior positions in universities and research institutes this percentage is significantly lower, less than 20% in Australia and less than 10% in Italy. In Italy, approximately 30% of researchers are women and some of these do occupy important positions and roles in universities and research centres. It is clear however from such statistics that we are still far from attaining worldwide gender equality in the sciences. Australian scientists of Italian origin will share their research interests and offer some insights into the career paths that they have pursued from Italy to Australia.

A multidisiplinary conference of 'Italian Research Down Under', Adelaide 17-18 November 2016. Organized by the Scientific Attaché, Embassy of Italy, in collaboration with Dr. Rodrigo Praino, Flinders University.

Fifth meeting of 'Italian Scientists Down Under', Perth 4 November 2016. Organized by the Scientific Attaché, Embassy of Italy, in collaboration with the University of Western Australia and the Australian Academy of Science.

The First Pietro Baracchi Conference: Italo-Australian Radio Astronomy in the Era of the SKA, Perth 1-4 November 2016. This conference commemorated Baracchi's contribution to Australian astronomy and illustrates the close ties between Australian and Italian astronomy. A reflection on the life and experiences of Baracchi offered us an opportunity to think about the future of international radio astronomy, in the context of large projects such as the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).

Fourth meeting of 'Italian Scientists Down Under', Sydney 29 September 2016. Organized by the Scientific Attaché, Embassy of Italy, in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Culture in Sydney, the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research and the University of Sydney.   

The 3rd meeting of Italian Scientists Down Under took place in Melbourne on the 5th of May 2016. Organized in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Culture in Melbourne and the Australian Academy of Science, the meeting saw presentations on the activities of Italian scientists active in Australia. The meeting was addressed by Professor Andrew Holmes, President of the Australian Academy of Science, who spoke about the Academy's international engagement with particular regard to the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei and Italian universities and research institutes.
