The ERIE Research Group hosts a number of visitors each year, who come for a variety of reasons: research, collaboration, seminar presentation, international student work experience/traineeship and field volunteering.

If you are interested in visiting the group to carry out research, you need to make contact with a member of the group, who has to agree to be your sponsor here at UWA.

There are a number of internal university processes that need to be completed before your arrival here at UWA, that will ensure facilities are available to you.

Therefore, if you intend visiting, please begin the process well in advance.
