Showcase 2017 - Research Driving Change
Research Driving Change – Showcase 2017 is a special event in the life of the CRC – a showcase of our research achievements 2013 to 2017.
The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC will host the event in Adelaide on 4-5 July 2017.
Research Driving Change – Showcase 2017 is an opportunity to listen, discuss and digest the learnings from across the whole research program, and highlight how the findings are being put into practice. Hear the views of end-users on what works in directing research and how to make it easier to absorb the findings into operations and policy.
All attendees will take home a package of publications that summarise the key findings of each project and point to ongoing ways of participation in utilisation. Research Driving Change – Showcase 2017 will also introduce the new projects that are beginning this year.
This is a time to celebrate achievements and reaffirm the goals that will take us through the next four years of national research into natural hazards.
Some of the original projects have finalised their research, while many others are set to begin the next stage of the science. But that is not the end of the story, as researchers and partners continue to work together on making sure the outputs are making a difference in natural hazards management.
New projects are also poised to begin that will take the research program into exciting new directions and build upon the work done in recent years. These include research into catastrophic event planning, land use planning, flood risk communication, predicting impacts on the built environment along the coast, diversity and wellbeing in emergency services, and mental health.
Research Driving Change – Showcase 2017 is a showcase of CRC achievements so far. The event is open to everyone, not just CRC partners. Come along, be informed and stay involved, we can all make a difference. Put National Wine Centre in Adelaide, Tuesday 4 July and Wednesday 5 July in your diary now.
