The CRC has been a hive of activity recently. Events in Canberra, Sydney, Coffs Harbour and the Gold Coast have all featured CRC science, while there is more to come in Wellington and Melbourne. Our independent review has also been completed, highlighting the quality of our research, our research utilisation activities and governance processes. The independent panel has provided some recommendations that will help the CRC in the coming years, and also suggestions around the transition beyond the current CRC programme funding period.
