Promising research students from the Centre’s eleven participating universities form the Graduate Research Interdisciplinary Network.
In association with the Australian Government’s Knowledge Sector Initiative Team, the inaugural GRIN Program took place across seven days in late November 2016, stopping in Canberra and Melbourne to align with the first Joint Science Symposium of the Indonesian Academy of Sciences and the Australian Academy of Science.
Twenty two graduate researchers, representing the Energy, Infrastructure, Health, and Urban Water clusters across both countries, were joined by four academic delegates at Professor and Associate Professor level.
Nicknamed ‘GRINnovators’, the group took part in workshops, site visits, lectures and cultural experiences spanning Big Data, policy, innovation, interdisciplinary research, career pathways and research impact.
This pilot program aims to cement the next generation of collaborative research between the two nations.
