The Academic Consortium for the 21st Century (AC21) has granted The Biometry Hub at Waite a $10,000 USD grant for 2018-19 to initiate a collaboration in the theory and practice of field sampling with the National University of Laos (Prof Silinthone Sacklokham) and the University of Canterbury, NZ (Prof Jennifer Brown).
Dr Olena Kravchuk, the University of Adelaide, is leading the project. The project is titled Promoting the uptake of the modern sampling theory in agriculture research and extension applications, and has a training and theory components.
In October- December, 2018, three workshops on field sampling for agricultural researchers will be presented in Australia, Laos and New Zealand. Additionally, in September-October, 2018 an international symposium on recent developments in the theory of ranked set sampling will be hosted in Adelaide.
If you have a project with a member of the AC21, (see http://www.ac21.org/english/about/members/members), you may directly benefit from the training and research opportunities the current project presents.
Enquires on the project are to be directed to Mr Peter Kasprzak, firstname.lastname@example.org.
