EOIS for new research project to review ecological resilience assessment tools and processes

EOIS for new research project to review ecological resilience assessment tools and processes

Expressions of interest are now open for a new project with the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC. The project is being undertaken for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning Victoria (DELWP) and seeks to provide an independent technical review of DELWP’s ecological assessment program and provide strategic direction for improving ecological resilience assessment tools and processes.

EOI proposals are due by 11.59pm 14 April 2021 to office@bnhcrc.com.au

This project will inform DELWP's Fire Ecology Strategy and Ecological Metrics Enhancement project, which seeks to deliver a long-term Fire Ecology Strategy and enhance DELWP's forest and fire ecology program including its use of ecological resilience metrics. The research could be conducted by the same team as the EOI to lead consultation with fire ecology subject matter experts, or it could be conducted separately. The research will provide detailed expert advice regarding key technical subjects and recommendations for feasible improvements to existing tools and processes. The research is due to be completed by 14 June 2021.

Tactical Research Fund

Tactical Research Fund

The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC established the Tactical Research Fund in 2017 to encourage the development of short duration research projects meeting the well-defined near-term needs of CRC end-user partners. The broad aim of the Tactical Research Fund is to provide a source of funding for short-term, end-user focused research projects or 12 months or less duration, addressing strategic issues for the sector and that have national significance.  

The Tactical Research Fund is currently not open for applications. Please be advised for the next round of funding by staying up-to-date with our website, Facebook and Twitter.

For more information and key documents visit the Tactical Research Fund page.

Quick response funding

Quick response funding

The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC have funding available for quick response research following natural hazards. The aim is to provide support for researchers to travel to areas affected by natural hazards (bushfire, flood, cyclone, severe storm, earthquake or tsunami) to gain an understanding of the event, the impacts and to capture perishable data. Funding support is limited to $2500 (inc. GST) per team for any individual event.

Applicants do not need to be current Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC researchers to be eligible. PhD students are eligible to apply for this funding where an understanding of the event directly relates to their PhD studies. 

For more information and key documents visit the quick response funding page.

Domestic and International Travel Support

Domestic and International Travel Support

Domestic and international conference travel support is available to researchers, PhD students receiving Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC scholarship support and Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC Associate students. Total funds available to support travel are capped annually.
