Congratulations to Dr Maarten Ryder, Visiting Research Fellow with the University of Adelaide here at the Waite, who recently travelled to Jinan, Shandong, PR China, to receive honorary citizenship of Shandong province.
This was awarded for his long-term scientific collaboration with the Shandong Academy of Sciences. Maarten has been collaborating on projects with Shandong since 1994.
Research partnerships between the Waite and Shandong are set to continue into the future. Establishment of a joint research laboratory in Soil Ecological Health and Remediation between the Ecology Institute, Shandong Academy of Sciences, and Matt Denton’s team here at Waite Campus is currently being negotiated.
