AeRO’s series of National eResearch Forums provides an excellent opportunity to discuss issues facing the sector.

The forums aim to engage national, state and institutional eResearch organisations, service provider and industry representatives as well as state and federal science agencies and have proven to be an excellent stimulus for discussion and collaboration and aim to identify key strategic initiatives.

To better engage our members, forums are conducted in different locations each year:

1st National Forum – Sydney – 20 Feb 2012

2nd National Forum- Melbourne 18 June 2012

3rd National Forum – Melbourne – 28 Oct 2012

4th National Forum Adelaide – 15 Mar 2013

8th National Forum – Canberra – 4 May 2017 –  “Thriving in a data-driven research world”

Leveraging the success of these forums, AeRO has established projects to focus efforts in the specific areas.
