About Us

Our vision is to be the preferred and trusted source of research and knowledge in bushfire and natural hazards.

National research...

The Bushfire and Natural Hazard Cooperative Research Centre is conducting research to build a disaster-resilient Australia. From July 2013, $47 million over eight years in Australian Government funds under the Cooperative Research Centres Program have been matched by support from state and territory government organisations, research institutions and NGOs.

NATIONAL RESEARCH PRIORITIES

across all natural hazards...

The CRC coordinates a national research effort in hazards, including bushfires, flood, storm, cyclone, heatwave, earthquake and tsunami.

OVERVIEW AND CORE RESEARCH

developed by members...

The research program has developed under the direction of the researchers and end-user agencies. The research has three major themes covering 12 clusters of projects, most of which span the priorities of those working in a multi-hazard environment.

PARTICIPATING ORGANISATIONS

to be used by our members...

Now in the sixth year of operation, researchers and end-user partners are working closely together to ensure that the research is embedded into the planning, policies and operations of partner organisations.

USING OUR RESEARCH

for the benefit of the Australian community...

The centre draws together all of Australia and New Zealand's fire and emergency service authorities with the leading experts across a range of scientific fields to explore the causes, consequences and mitigation of natural disasters. Research partners include universities, the Bureau of Meteorology and Geoscience Australia, and several international research organisations. This combined effort is helping to build disaster resilient communities across Australia.
