The Research To Drive Change forums are now fully online. The series communicated the findings of the final three years of research at the Bushfire CRC.  Each forum and associated video will remain accessible into the future under the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC, along with Fire Notes and more in depth research reports, leaving a strong legacy.

Each forum featured leading researchers and industry end users discussing the research findings, what each finding meant and answering questions. They were also accompanied by video.

The live online forums continued through 2014. Topics covered included community safety, next generation fire modelling, extreme fire behaviour, firefighter health and safety, ecology, incident management and economics to aid decision making. The full list of forums and details for each are available below.
