A program of interactive and engaging events for the fire and research community as well as the general public is a key part of promoting the research outputs of the Bushfire CRC.
This page promotes upcoming events - both Bushfire CRC owned and external related events - and also contains outputs from past research events. Much of the Bushfire CRC annual events program has been integrated with AFAC’s Knowledge Events through a joint initiative - Professional Development Events.
