Forum focus on projects

CRC end-user partners, researchers and PhD students from across the country gathered in Melbourne last week for the Research Advisory Forum.

Held at RMIT University, nearly 100 people attended the two day event featured project updates from half the research projects in the CRC program, alongside focused discussions on utilisation and the next steps in the research.

Four CRC PhD students, Maryam Nasim, Rahul Wadhwani, James Furlaud and Heather Simpson also presented on their research, in a university-style Three Minute Thesis format. This followed on from a presentation skills workshop the previous day, where 14 CRC PhD students had expert instruction on how to best present to an audience and engage the crowd on their science.

The Research Advisory Forum focused on projects in the physical sciences and engineering clusters including:

  • Flood and coastal management
  • Built environment
  • Severe and high impact weather
  • Bushfire predictive services
  • Prescribed burning and catchment management

The RAF supports both the research and the utilisation aims of the CRC by allowing for a more intensive discussion on the progress of each project, as well as providing more opportunities for informal networking.

All the presentations from the RAF are available from the resources tab on the Events page.
