My first two months at the CRC have been a great opportunity to explore our research portfolio and to meet and discuss our projects with researchers and end-users. If there is a single message from my first days at the CRC it is that I will be looking closely at the utilisation plans for all of our projects, initially to make sure that they are realistic and are likely to deliver outcomes in a form that is useable by our end-users and then to look at how the CRC can best support you in achieving those outcomes.
