Four years of highlights and achievements

Partners in the CRC will this week start to receive Highlights and Achievements 2013-2017, a publiction providing a high-level summary of our research, utilisation and engagement activities.

In a departure from the usual annual report format, this report is an overview of the first four years of the CRC’s eight-year funding period, based around the projects, the people and the organisations that contributed to the overall success of the centre.

Our interactive version is now online, which presents Highlights and Achievements 2013-2017 in a different format to the usual PDF. Take a look here

This half-way point marked an appropriate time to provide a review of the original aims, the ongoing progress, and future options for natural hazards research.

These activities culminated in a visible display of progress, achievements and vision at the CRC’s Research Driving Change – Showcase 2017 event in Adelaide in the first week of July 2017. This two-day event with researchers and partner organisations collated and presented the research outputs as a series of case studies and high-level impacts. Visit the Showcase  page for reports, video and audio recordings.

The primary activities 2013-2017 have been:

  • Delivering on our research and utilisation objectives
  • Consolidating, refreshing and promoting the research program
  • Bringing together researchers, partners and broader stakeholders through a calendar of events, conferences and workshops
  • Building the capacity of the sector through postgraduate research and mentoring
  • Establishing national research priorities for natural hazards emergency management
  • Developing options beyond this funding period to transition to an ongoing research centre.
