IoT China Study Tour not happening in 2019

In the (Australian) Summer of ‘16/17, ‘17/18 and ‘18/19 I ran an Internet of Things China Study Tour at the Beijing Institute of Technology. They were good times.

However, the New Colombo Plan grant (which provided the money for us to provide the travel & accommodation scholarships for the study tour) expired last year—it was only a 3-year thing. As a result, the BIT trip is not running this year (Summer ‘19/20). It might happen in future years (if we get more grant funding) but I’m afraid I can’t be certain about that.

If you’re interested in “study abroad” opportunities more generally then the nice folks at ANU Global Programs are the best people to talk to.
