CAUTHE and SMAANZ are key organisations that work to promote research and scholarship in the areas of leisure and sport, tourism, hospitality and events within Australia and New Zealand. The Memorandum of Understanding aims to facilitate opportunities for collaboration, networking and cross-disciplinary engagement between the two organisations for mutual benefit. It is anticipated that greater collaboration will strengthen research cultures, inform teaching and learning development and broaden potential links with industry across sectors identified.
Both organisations agree to:
- Provide a ‘member discount’ for conference registration for CAUTHE and SMAANZ conferences (if available)
- Cross promote calls for papers, conferences, symposia, workshops, and seminars (including PhD/Early Career workshops) to each others’ members
- Share knowledge about the effective management of their professional association (that is not subject to commercial restraints)
- Identify and co-host suitable joint events or activities, such as the HDR conference
