Event description

Description

You're invited to attend our Canberra EcoScience Pathways Forum.

This is the first of a series of engagement days around Australia to connect academics and industry professionals working in EcoSciences. The Pathways Series provide an opportunity to learn more about existing digital infrastructure and training and skills development programs for environmental science. It will also showcase research and government exemplar users of digital technologies, and ignite discussions around common issues and practices.

This forum is an opportunity for the EcoScience community to find out about contemporary data and technology-intensive research and management practices as well as have their say on better integration of digital technologies in courses and training programs, and how the community can collaborate to advance research practices into management decisions.

The Program:
