The University of New South Wales is delighted to host the U21 Research Collaboration Group meeting in 2016

This year’s theme is “Collaborate or crumble – the keys to success”. The two day meeting at UNSW will pick up on previous RCG meeting discussions and aim to get the group thinking about initiating bilateral and trilateral funding with members of the U21 network. There will be pre-meeting teleconferences and tasks to complete beforehand so the group can get the most out of this year’s meeting.
