News from the CRC
Full house for research forum
SOLD OUT!! The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC Research Forum next week in Wellington is officially full.
Reflecting a growing interest in all hazards research, demand for places has exceeded supply of seats for the forum at our first annual conference, which begins next Tuesday 2 September in New Zealand.
Held on the first day of the conference week, a lucky 390 emergency managers and scientists will discuss the range of all hazards research underway, along with findings from the previous Bushfire CRC.
Many more BNHCRC researchers are speaking on the main conference program on the Wednesday and Thursday, complemented by agency and industry speakers. In total, the week will see almost 100 presentations, along with five personal development programs and four field trips.
CRC researchers and PhD students have also been hard at work developing an impressive display of research posters.
Breaking away from tradition at AFAC14, this year’s conference dinner will be a bit different. A night at the Te Papa Museum will see New Zealand’s national museum open only to conference delegates, with a roaming dinner to be served at different exhibitions. It is sure to be an entertaining and memorable evening.
Be sure to visit the BNHCRC and AFAC stand, which will be located in the entrance foyer. The stand will feature each mini documentary video that has been developed as part of the Bushfire CRC Research To Drive Change online forum series on a specially designed display.
While you’re at the stand, make sure you grab a copy of our special new publication – a comprehensive document of the achievements of the Bushfire CRC from 2010-2014.
