AFAC offers travel support for international conference attendance.

Thursday, 05 February 2015

AFAC (Australasian Fire and Emergency Services Council) is offering up to $2000 in travel support for international conference attendance to members who demonstrate that they have utilised Bushfire CRC Research to improve the business of their organisation.


This initiative offers a number of benefits including;

  • The building of capability within agencies (preparation and presentation of research-based conference papers requires an appreciation of the research and the utilisation process);
  • Cases studies of research impact for sharing within the industry; and
  • Promotion of the value of research to our industry.


Applications can be made at any time and turn-around will be within two weeks. The number of applications supported each year will depend on the quality of the applications and budget considerations. 


Applications will be administered by the Manager Research Utilisation, who will assess each application, seek advice from AFAC Directors and approval from the AFAC CEO.
