Australian Alps Science Management Forum - workshop summary

Hub Publication

In 2011, the Australian Alps Liaison Committee formed a strategic partnership with the Landscapes and Policy Hub to assist in their research aim to develop tools and policy options to better integrate biodiversity into landscape scale planning. The purpose of the Australian Alps Science Management Forum was to form small collaborative teams of Alps staff and Landscapes and Policy Hub researchers to focus on key topics related to landscape scale management of biodiversity. This proved a unique opportunity for Alps staff to collaborate with researchers on topics of direct relevance to management. For hub researchers, it was an opportunity to refine research questions and make progress toward collaborative research that can be completed within 18 months as part of the Landscapes and Policy Hub’s research program.

Workshop Participants: 22 hub researchers and 25 alps managers from NSW, Victoria, ACT and the Australian Government agencies worked in seven smaller focus groups to develop or refine research questions, goals, methodology, data needs and deliverables. Workshop Outcomes: The seven groups produced a research plan to address key questions (outlined in report). The feedback and evaluation of the workshop was very supportive.
