The Department of Education supports the building of research infrastructure links between Australia and other countries. For instance, Australia and the European Union (EU) share a common approach to investing and prioritising research infrastructure.

This year, following a successful Department of Education hosted delegation visit of 17 members from the EU in 2013, an International Conference for Research Infrastructure 2014 will be held in Athens on 2–4 April.

The Conference — co-organised by the European Commission and Greece under the Presidency of the EU — will be another opportunity to broaden international discussion of important issues in research infrastructure. These issues were discussed during the successful EU delegation visit, which was an excellent regional preparatory event ahead of the conference.
