Key research strengths on agenda for EU Ambassador

The Ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Union to Australia and to New Zealand, His Excellency Mr David Daly, visited UOW on 14 December for the first time.

Staff involved in some of the key research strengths of the University provided briefings to Mr Daly during a session held at the SMART Infrastructure Facility.

The Ambassador told university officials he was greatly impressed by the range of research being conducted and how the addresses were given in a way where non-experts could grasp what was being presented.

Mr Daly highlighted how the research strengths of UOW matched in many ways priorities that the European Union wished to pursue.

The Ambassador indicated that he was hoping to return to the University in July next year. While at UOW, Mr Daly and his wife, Aideen, attended a lunch which included the Deputy Chancellor, Dr Stephen Andersen; the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Wellings; and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Judy Raper.

Mr Daly has worked in the external relations side of the European Union service for almost 20 years and had previously served in the Irish Diplomatic Service.

Posted to Canberra in January 2009, Ambassador Daly had previously been the Acting Director in the European Commission responsible for the accession negotiations of Croatia and Turkey to the European Union and for relations between the EU and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

He has been responsible for relations with many countries of the Western Balkans since 2000.
