Launch of a new series of conference-debates

The Embassy of France in Australia, in partnership with The Conversation website, is launching a new series of conference debates called The French Australian Conversations (FAC).

The aim of this series, which will be launched on the occasion of the visit to Australia by Jean-Marc Ayrault in March 2017, is to initiate a dialogue between French and Australian academics on the major relevant topics of today.

The Conversation is a website which spreads the word from universities on the major current themes, linking “academic rigour” to “journalistic flair”. It was launched in Australia in 2011 and later France in 2015.

The French Australian Conversations brings contributors from The Conversation France and Australia together, from universities and research organisations in both countries, to share their expertise with the general public.

The FAC is also aimed towards facilitating the development of collaborations between academics from both countries.

The first conference will be dedicated to climate change and sustainable development, and will be held at UNSW on the 1st of March 2017.
