Research Advisory Forum - Perth 2017
The next Research Advisory Forum (RAF) will be held in Perth in at the Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre, University of Western Australia, on 5-6 April. This RAF will focus on the Resilience and Policy themes of the research program. Projects from the following clusters will present:
- Governance and institutional knowledge
- Economics, policy and decision-making
- Scenario and loss analysis
- Communications and warnings
- Emergency management capability
- Understanding and measuring social resilience
- Sustainable volunteering
The RAF is an important CRC gathering held every six months, showcasing the latest research from one half of our research program. It is an opportunity for CRC partners, project leaders and end-users in the CRC to work together, and gain an overview of the research and utilisation activities within the CRC. It allows for a more intensive discussion on the progress of each project, as well as providing more opportunities for informal networking. The format will be similar to recent RAFs and included Three Minute Thesis presentations by CRC PhD students.
