Halfway to delivering to the country
The CRC is delivering on its promise, half-way through its current funding period and with four more years to go. We held a showcase event in Adelaide at the beginning of July to demonstrate that our partners are already using the work to create a safer community and build resilience to natural hazards. Around 200 of our partners listened to their peers from agencies talk about what they had learned and how they were using the new knowledge from the CRC research.
There is now a stronger focus on what happens beyond this funding period. Showcase 2017 included a great panel session from several of the sector's leading players talking about opportunities for the future.
As part of the refocus toward the future we launched the National Research Priorities for Natural Hazards Emergency Management at the showcase. This publication meets an original aim of the CRC to contribute to the national disaster resilience agenda.
This is an extensive piece of work conducted over the last 18 months with workshops and discussions across multiple sectors, with a final noting by the Federal Government coordinated Australia-New Zealand Emergency Management Committee in July.
The research priorities cover detailed questions for the future, as well as highlight common issues across all relevant sectors. These priorities provide a strong underpinning for future research proposals either through the CRC or more broadly in agency priorities or academics applying for funding through various funding bodies.
For more details see the full suite of documents that include an overview Statement; an overview of all the Workshops; and a series of theme specific publications. Find them at bnhcrc.com.au/nationalpriorities
