Throughout 2021 AURIN will be running a series of community forums across Australia. These forums will provide the urban, regional, and social science research community with the opportunity to design the future of AURIN.

We see these events as a chance to discuss the advancement of eResearch infrastructure to enable the research community to address the critical economic, social, environmental, and engineering challenges faced by Australian cities and regions. We intend to discuss research data, analytics, and modelling needs across an array of themes—such as transport, demographics, climate change, health, housing, liveability, social inclusion and more.

We invite researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to attend the forums and help design as a community the collective eResearch capability required to help deliver economically prosperous and socially inclusive Australian cities and towns.
