Digital Research Training in Geoscience and Astronomy

From the Earth to the stars, developments in digital research are requiring geoscientists and astronomy to learn new data skills. 

This webinar summarises 2 presentations to the Australian eResearch Skilled Workforce Summit held in September 2019.


  • Dr Lesley Wyborn (NCI, ARDC, AuScope) covers meeting FAIR Data skills challenges in the geosciences including interoperability and reusability, and the AGU-led enabling FAIR Data project. She also talks about the need for hybrid skills bringing computational and data expertise together and work undertaken to identify the skills sets needed.
  • Dr Robert Shen (Astronomy Australia Ltd) explains how ADACS (Astronomy, data and computing services) was established to provide focused data services and infrastructure to astronomy as well as expert training.
