Australian Defence Science, Technology & Research (ADSTAR) Summit 2022

The Australian Defence Science, Technology and Research Summit (ADSTAR) is Australia’s principal forum for sharing and showcasing defence-related research and innovation.

The summit brings together innovators, entrepreneurs, small business, big business, universities, industry and government to network, share ideas and help shape future collaboration.

The theme for the ADSTAR 2022 is ‘Resilience’, how to prevail in rapidly changing and unpredictable settings.

ADSTAR specifically seeks to harness the national science and technology enterprise, creating new and strengthening established partnerships across Defence, government, industry, and academic sectors, aligning ground-breaking research and innovations to the STaR Shot aspirations.

Digital Science will be exhibiting at this year’s conference as a Silver Sponsor. Visit our stand to learn more about Symplectic Grant Tracker, Dimensions, Altmetric and Figshare.

I cannot overstate how pleased we have been.
We have to have confidence to work with a partner
for at least 5 years on a project of this size.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

Floris van der Leest, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
