Focus Group Meetings

The RNSA held two focus group meetings, one later in 2004 and one concurrent with the RNSA annual conference in 2005. These meetings were intended for senior researchers to:

  • develop networks and personal relationships;

  • identify common research synergies;

  • exchange knowledge and gain broader perspectives on each participant’s particular research methodologies;

  • make recommendations on potential research opportunities to the RNSA Research Program Coordination Committee; and

  • facilitate commercialisation of research and facility sharing [in accordance with the principles set out in the RNSA network agreement].


Annual Summer Retreat

The RNSA held an Annual Summer Retreat during the Australian universities common summer break. The overall aim is to nurture young investigators including postgraduate students and postdoctoral research fellows. The RNSA will seek to identify its leading researchers and international visitors to contribute to the development of young investigators research leadership and management skills at the retreat.

The retreat will inculcate young investigators with skills and knowledge to help them:

  • find opportunities for cross-collaborative research;

  • access current research activities of the RNSA;

  • establish personal research agendas; and

  • access the ‘Early Career Research Forum’.

Emergency Management Australia has proposed to sponsor one of the summer retreats at the Mt. Macedon site with a special focus on risk and response management.
