This year has been a significant one for all associated with the Bushfire CRC, we have finished the first version and are now well on the way with the new research program. It has been an interesting and exciting ride and I thank everyone who has been able to help in some way. Now the serious work begins!

The last month has seen a number of major initiatives following the Research Advisory Forum we held in November. Many of the research projects have now been signed and are actively recruiting the new researchers. We have signed up a considerable number of new students, and we are starting to see the results from a number of the early starting projects.

I recently attended a research workshop in Christchurch New Zealand co-ordinated by Scion, where many interesting pieces of work were presented, the attendance and engagement from across the New Zealand fire sector was impressive and provides a good model from which the Bushfire CRC could learn.

I am looking forward to an equally exciting 2011, and I look forward to meeting as many of the researchers and end-users as possible during the coming year in the meantime please have a happy Christmas break and a safe New Year.

As ever, any questions, drop me a line.
