CEO's Update January 2018
The entire Wollongong team is now back in the office and ready to go for an exciting year ahead.
We have hit the ground running in January planning out a number of key events to take place throughout this year. A number of these key dates are listed in this edition but if you have any questions or need to clarify and particular event dates, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or any of centre staff.
You will see in this newsletter we have provided an emphasis on examining the impact of Energy Pipelines CRC research outcomes on Standards such as AS2885. At the core of the Energy Pipelines CRC is the drive to provide safer, more efficient and more reliable pipelines for the Australian community and updates to Standards is just one of the means through which this is achieved. The impact on a broad array of Standards demonstrates the breadth of Energy Pipelines CRC research
A review of recent scientific publications as well as a full list is also available in this newsletter. Energy Pipelines CRC researchers are recognised for their quality work in scientific journals, as well as disciplined focus on key industry challenges at both academic and industry conferences. This includes the International Pipeline Conference which we will attend in September this year in Calgary, Canada.
These outcomes will also be highlighted at the research conference to be held in July this year in Geelong.
This event, traditionally an opportunity to bring together researchers associated with Energy Pipelines CRC projects has been expanded to the broader Energy Pipelines CRC community as a means to celebrate and recognise the success of the cooperative research model.
Given that this is the last time this event will be held as part of the Energy Pipelines CRC calendar, I strongly recommend you to mark the dates 9th-10th July in your calendars and attend. Further information about this event will be released in the coming weeks.
Next week the ongoing application for the proposed Future Fuels CRC will reach another key milestone. A selected group of members of the Australian energy community from both industry and research participants will meet with the CRC selection committee in Canberra as part of the formal interview process
I wish you all the best for 2018 and look forward to seeing many of you throughout the year at both our key research events as well as the APGA events throughout the year especially the 50th Convention held this year in September in Darwin.
