Research promotion was on the agenda this month at two high profile research and industry events with our partners.
- The CRC supported the High Impact Weather Research stream of presenations at the 25th Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society and 12th International Conference for Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography at the University of New South Wales last week. CEO Dr Richard Thornton opened the session with a shot presentation on the CRC research program.
- The CRC was pleased to participate in the three-day Engaging for Impact -Academia and Industry Co-Creating Our Future event at RMIT University this week. Along with several other RMIT-linked CRCs across a range of sectors (manufacturing, space technology, environmental remediation) the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC spoke with industry representatives and other researchers about our ongoing work and how they could be involved. The CRC featured RMIT-based research led by Dr Blythe McLennan on sustainable volunteering and by Dr Briony Towers on child centred disaster risk reduction.
