Representatives from the CRCSI were invited by Future Position X to attend the GeoLife Research Program Roundtable in Gavle, Sweden. The group participated in an intense series of discussions and meetings over four days to advance the program planning and the formation of collaborative partnerships with GeoLife.
The GeoLife program aims to integrate health, information, public infrastructure and knowledge with fundamental GIS technology to become a driver of economic growth and sustainable innovation and has significant Swedish funding for the coming ten years. Several CRCSI proposals are under consideration within the program with decisions to be made in coming months.
The CRCSI attendees included CEO Peter Woodgate, Tarun Weeramanthri (Chair CRCSI Health Program Board and Executive Director of the Public Health Division, WA), Mike Ridout Director Stakeholder Engagement, Health Program Science Directors Clive Sabel and Geoff Jaquez, plus affiliate member Dan Goldberg and Research Investment Committee member Mike Goodchild. Future Position X very kindly funded the travel.
