The purpose of this invitation-only meeting will be for members of IRDR, IRIDeS and their academic collaborators to evaluate the areas of common interest established during the preceding two days of activities and to plan a strategy for future collaborative research projects centred upon the two institutions.

The morning will begin with an overview of the respective national research funding structures, sources and limitations with specific focus on funding sources for international collaborations. A general discussion will then follow, along with breakout sessions to discuss potential work packages.
