15th - 19th October, 2018 | Melbourne (Pullman Albert Park)
eResearch 2018 offered delegates the opportunity to engage, connect, and share their ideas and exemplars concerning new eResearch capabilities, and how information and communication technologies help researchers to collaborate, collect, manage, share, process, analyse, store, find, understand and re-use data and information.
At the eResearch EPIC found out the state of play concerning Australia's interest in collaborations with the EU. EPIC tried to localize the most interested target group (DSM) and increases the general awareness of implementing a DSM in European politics until 2020. At the same time, it was conveyed that there is the possibility of jointly exploring and designing the DSM, especially its eInfrastructures.

RMIT Policy Seminar
"EU DIGITAL SINGLE MARKET: What does it mean? What are the implications for Australia-EU e-trade?"
The EU Digital Single Market (DSM), launched in May 2015, is the strategy of the European Commission to ensure cross-border access to online activities for individuals and businesses in Europe under conditions of fair competition, consumer and data protection, removing geo-blocking and copyright issues.
This seminar discussed the progress in implementing the EU DSM (including the General Data Protection Regulation), its implications for Australia-EU e-trade, and the the current negotiations for the EU Australia Free Trade Agreement.
The EPIC coordinator, Dr. Erich Prem, made a guest contribution during this seminar. This gave a closer insight into the European Digital Single Market strategy and possibly also an outlook on potential cooperation in this area between Australia and the EU.
The Event was free of charge and took place on 17 October, 12.30 pm - 02.00 pm, at RMIT City Campus (Building 80, Level 5, Lecture Theatre 12).
