SRAP Laureate

Phenomics Australia Communications and Outreach Coordinator, Dr Marina Trigueros, proudly received the SRAP Laureate Award last Friday 26th of November during the 7th Australia-Spain Research Forum “A Collaborative World” organised by the association of Spanish Researchers in Australia-Pacific (SRAP) in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy in Australia, the Australia-Spain Council Foundation, and the Ramón Areces Foundation.

The 2021 SRAP Laureate Award was announced during the Forum and has been created by the President and Vice-president of SRAP, to commemorate the outstanding work that some of SRAP members have done in past years as part of the Board.

‘I feel very fortunate, and it is a very humbling honour to have received the 2021 SRAP Laureate. It has been a pleasure to collaborate among this group of passionate researchers contributing to strengthening the ties and friendships between Australia and Spain in the Science Communication sector and beyond. Thank you all for your warm wishes.” Dr Marina Trigueros, Communications and Outreach Coordinator at Phenomics Australia says.’

As part of the SRAP Laureate, Dr Marina Trigueros was also presented with a print by Jodie Cunningham, an Australian artist based in Canberra who has created a series of unique prints of images, ‘Turn Around – Canberra Wildflowers’, using  geometric forms referencing the parliamentary flagpole as a symbol for Canberra and coloured with a palette derived from  diverse Canberra Wildflowers.

SRAP organises annually the “Australia-Spain Research Forum”, a multidisciplinary conference aimed at the wider community, to highlight Australia-Spain research and present broad research and cultural topics that are of special interest to the Australian and Spanish societies. This year, the 7th Australia-Spain Research Forum was entitled “A Collaborative World“, to show “how researchers help society to create a better world”.  It was held at The Australian Hearing Hub, Macquarie University (Sydney, NSW) and online on Friday, November 26.

The program included experts on present-day issues: the current pandemic, the challenge of climate change, transgenic products, cancer treatments, renewable energy, Scientific Diplomacy, and astronomy for a better world, among others.
