Research Advisory Forum - Brisbane 2015
The second Research Advisory Forum (RAF) for 2015 took place at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane on 17-18 November 2015.
This RAF focused on the physical science and engineering projects of our research program. The following clusters presented:
- Coastal management
- Monitoring and prediction
- Next generation fire modelling
- Prescribed burning and catchment management
- Hardening buildings and infrastructure
All presentations from the two-day event are now available under the publications tab below.
The RAF supports both the research and the utilisation aims of the CRC and allows for a more intensive discussion on the progress of each project as well as providing more opportunities for informal networking.
The second day of the RAF also coincided with Wear Orange Wednesday, with many attendees dressing in organge in support of the SES.
The format for the two days included a 30 minute presentation from each project in the main auditorium with a 20 minute summary of work in the last year and where things are headed, 5 minutes overview from an end user representative and 5 minutes of question and answer time.
Scheduled breakout sessions throughout the two days enabled each project to have time to undertake workshop activities with end users, including discussion on how the outputs of the projects can be used by CRC partners and how the teams can best work together to achieve this.
