The Conference will be held at the National Wine Centre in Adelaide from 15-17 May 2012.  Collaborate | Innovate | 2012 will concentrate on what makes collaborations work; what leads to real change. The Program will contain a great mix of workshops to give you practical guidance on how to build, sustain and improve collaboration. Over the next few months we will announce some very exciting speakers.

Pre-program registration starts from today and as a special thank you to the first 50 registrants, our friends at FAL Lawyers are hosting a very special wine tasting on the evening of 16 May, ahead of the Conference dinner. You will be taken through a range of wines in the Adelaide Winemakers range by Winestate Magazine’s 2010 Winemaker of the Year, Nick Haselgrove.

A substantial discount is available for Early Bird Registrations right through to 1 March 2012 and it is worth noting the Group Registration which will really suit teams.

Australian National Data Service (ANDS): Licensing

The AusGOAL website now features a video of Ross Wilkinson, Executive Director of ANDS, explaining why licensing is important to ANDS. 

ANDS is promoting the use of AusGOAL in the research and innovation sector in order to build on the work already done in creating a single approach to licensing in the government sector.

ANDS has established two groups to share information about licensing.  If you are interested in joining in the discussions, please contact Margaret.Henty@ands.org.au.  They are the

Research Data Licensing Working Group for Infrastructure Providers and the 

University Data Licensing Implementers Group.
