The Governing Board of the Bushfire CRC is currently considering a vision to build upon the successful research program of the last decade.

As the new Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC lays its foundations over the coming year, the Bushfire CRC will focus on completing its research program and working with partners to ensure the research is thoroughly taken up within our sector. 

Bushfire CRC partners can be assured that during 2013/14, research utilisation and contract research will continue. On the contract side, some research extends through to 2016. I encourage any partners with further needs for specific contract research to talk to me about your ideas.

Clearly, the Bushfire CRC has much ongoing work to do so its members gain the most from their 10 years of investment in fire science.

Meanwhile, the Bushfire CRC will support and work closely with the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC. The research program of the new CRC will be underway by September this year but, given that it will take some time for the research to build momentum and deliver outputs, the Bushfire CRC will continue with its high profile activities during 2013/14, including our 10th Annual Conference and Research Forum this September.

All partners have a crucial role in the next phase of the Bushfire CRC; this commitment will see through the national initial investment in bushfire research.
