Research Advisory Forum - Melbourne 2017

The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC Research Advisory Forum (RAF) was held in Melbourne on 25 and 26 October 2017. This RAF focused on the physical science and engineering projects in the CRC research program:

  • Flood and coastal management
  • Built environment
  • Severe and high impact weather
  • Bushfire predictive services
  • Prescribed burning and catchment management

What will happen

The format differed slightly from previous RAFs, based on your feedback.

Day one featured brief presentations from all projects in the main room, with an emphasis on end-user take up of research findings to date. There will two breakout sessions.

Day two comprised entirely of breakout sessions with individual projects. These sessions focused on planning in support of subsequent utilisation of the research.

All the presentations from the RAF are available from the resources tab below.

A PhD student workshop on Communicating the Science was held on Tuesday 24 October 2017, where CRC PhD students received expert instruction on how to best present to an audience and engage the crowd on their science..

Where:
RMIT University
Building 80, 445 Swanston Street, Melbourne
When:
Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 October 2017
