Research gets on a roll

The research program kicked off this week with 170 project end users and researchers attending our Establishment Research Advisory Forum (RAF) in Adelaide.

The RAF provided the first opportunity for CRC partners, project leaders and end users in the CRC to work together, gain a complete overview of all of the planned research activities within the CRC, and commence the process of shaping the future of each of the 36 projects.

All projects presented an overview of their research plans on the first day of the forum, Tuesday 18 March.

The National Wine Centre of Australia provided a dramatic backdrop for the long day of presentations. As host partner for this first forum, the University of Adelaide welcomed everyone to the venue through Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research Strategy) Prof Rob Saint.

All the presentations from this forum are being placed online now on our Events page.

The Research Advisory Forums will be invaluable for ensuring each project receives regular feedback and ongoing support.  They will be held twice a year, with each project reporting on its progress once a year.
