The Oceania node has collaboration and information, knowledge and experience sharing as its central ethos. Training is one mechanism for sharing information, knowledge and experience

Training activities play a major role in supporting both node partners and in-country partners to build their capacity and understanding on current technologies.

Training occurs at various levels including regional Universities, training workshops, secondments, and multi-disciplinary projects.

The University of Sydney coordinates training activities across the Oceania Node and also builds training programs globally.

Upcoming training
