Fostering a research community culture: catalysing collaboration between universities, agencies and decision makers
The complexity and infrastructure demands of climate and water research have outgrown the capacity of any single organisation. More than ever, a community approach is needed. The 3rd national OzEWEX workshop will examine the networks, transdisciplinary collaboration and infrastructure needed to meet future challenges.
The workshop will be held at the Australian National University in Canberra, ACT, on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 December 2015. The format will focus on thought-provoking invited presentations and discussion, and the development of new community initiatives. The following topics will be addressed:
Observation networks and enhancing data sharing
Community modelling and data assimilation systems
Collaborative research to address Australia’s climate and water challenges
Towards unified and diversified streamflow prediction – connecting research, operations and decision making
Participation is free, thanks to generous support from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Geoscience Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology, Murray-Darling Basin Authority, the Australian National University and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science.
