News from the CRC
Physical sciences at forum
Projects based on the physical sciences and engineering were the focus of the Research Advisory Forum (RAF) in Melbourne last week.
Around 100 researchers, end users and senior stakeholder representatives met at RMIT University to hear about fire coalesence, storm surge, remote sensing, coastal trapped waves, clustered events, hardened buildings in earthquake zones, flood forecasting, coupled fire-atmosphere modelling and much more.
While most people chose to listen to the project presentations in the main auditorium, many others chose to make use of the break-out rooms for more intensive and detailed discussion (photo below).
The projects in the Economics and Strategic Decisions and Resilience themes will present at the next RAF in April 2015.
The RAF is an activity that supports both the research and the utilisation aims of the CRC.
The host partner for this event, RMIT University, provided an excellent venue for a productive and informative two days. The Deputy Pro Vice Chancellor Prof Matthew Cuthbertson, opened the forum with comments strongly in support of the CRC program.
All the presentations from the Research Advisory Forum are now online.
