A planning workshop will reportedly be held on April 5 and 6 at the Sydney Harbour Marriott, however little detail on the special invitation has been provided. 

‘(Participants will) relax over drinks and a light supper in the Opera Bar overlooking the harbor and then catch Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra in the theatre at the Sydney Opera House,’ University of Sydney said. 

The university said they would cover the costs for up to two nights where participants will be ‘reimbursed on submission of receipts after the event’.

‘The process for developing a Centre of Excellence bid for the Australian Research Council requires world-class academics to come together to discuss their work,’ a University of Sydney spokeswoman told Sydney Morning Herald.

Eight experts have been invited by the university to ‘share their ideas’ with a focus on the grant.
