I was in the US last month for the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy workshop in Nevada talking up the CRC program and trying to find how we can better get our science out. The mostly US-based delegates were particularly impressed with the way the CRC works with end-users from the beginning to get the research right through Research Advisory Forums and other meetings. The idea that fire and forest agency people were sitting at the same table as the researchers at the beginning of the project was quite novel.
