Pacific and European researchers meet in Brisbane

The first bi-regional platform of the PACE-Net project was held last week in Brisbane with more than 60 participants from Pacific ACP countries and overseas territories (OCT), New Zealand, Australia and Europe.[…]

This event, jointly organized by IRD and the ANU at the new Ecosciences Precinct, brought together experts and representatives of key Pacific and European stakeholder institutions, as well as representatives from the 10 partner institutions of the PACE-Net consortium. The highlights of the week included the expert thematic workshops on the 3rd of July, focusing on the topics of climate change, water, energy, health and ecosystems.

The experts’ conclusions and recommendations will be communicated to the European Commission Directorate for Research and Innovation, so that they can be taken into account for the next phase of scientific programming. The four-day event was also attended by two members of the project’s External Advisory Board who delivered their opinions and recommendations on the preliminary project results and forthcoming project actions. The next bi-regional platform is planned for March 2012 in Brussels, to be organized by the German partner (IB-DLR) of the PACE-Net consortium.
