All CRC research findings will be on show at a special event, Research Driving Change, in Adelaide on 4 to 5 July. 

Research Driving Change – Showcase 2017 is an opportunity to listen, discuss and digest the learnings from across the whole research program, and highlight how the findings are being put into practice.

Everyone is invited to attend, with registrations and an agenda preview out now. Hear the views of end users on what works in directing research and how to make it easier to absorb the findings into operations and policy.

All attendees will take home a package of publications that summarise the key findings of each project and point to ongoing ways of participation in utilisation. Research Driving Change – Showcase 2017 will also introduce the new projects that are beginning this year.

This is a time to celebrate achievements and reaffirm the goals that will take us through the next four years of national research into natural hazards. See all the details at
