Today was the last day of the 2016 SCAR Open Science Conference. It was an amazing and successful conference and the team represented South Africa and the project with pride! Malaysia played the perfect host and everyone in the team got to meet new people, network and garner new knowledge on their field. The last few oral presentation were also today, with Ian, Gabrielle, Jessica and Christel all speaking today. The next SCAR conference will be held in Davos, Switzerland in 2018.
The team would like to thank all their sponsors and funders (NRF, ANTPAS, Rhodes University) for their generous support in getting them to the #SCAR2016. But the conference activities are not over for all the project’s team members. Ian and Christel will be attending the last of the workshops and business meetings over the next few days, with all members back in South Africa by 1 September.
