The universal language of science plays an important role in building relationships across national borders. As close neighbours, Indonesia and Australia share many of the same interests and concerns regarding the human and environmental issues facing us in our rapidly changing world. Our two countries also have a long history of research collaboration between governments, public research agencies, and universities spanning a wide array of topics.
The Australian Academy of Science and the Indonesian Academy of Sciences strive to promote a culture of scientific excellence in their respective countries. To this end, we are delighted to co-host the inaugural Australia-Indonesia Science Symposium. This seminal event will gather early- and mid-career researchers, established scientists, public and private sector organisations, with the aim of generating vibrant scientific discussion and increased enthusiasm for scientific cooperation. It is our hope that this event will create a better understanding of the pivotal role of science in supporting both Indonesia and Australia to thrive and excel, and will foster existing links and build new ones which will help bring our nations closer together.

It was the first Canberra building to be added to the National Heritage List, for its historical and architectural significance.read more
