Hub researchers recently met for a workshop with NT Government policy-makers and regulators to share relevant research and solicit feedback on how to maximise impact across the Top End.
It was a full house with nearly 50 attendees representing the Departments of Environment and Natural Resources, and Tourism, Sport and Culture as well as the Department of the Chief Minister. Short research presentations were followed by extended roundtable discussions where government staff engaged with individual researchers to discuss outcomes and ways to tailor research outputs to facilitate uptake as projects near completion.
Feedback from the workshop was very positive, with the majority of attendees assessing the workshop as “excellent” and the remainder as “good”. Research users said that the event’s “greatest benefit is gaining better understanding of project outcomes to provide direction for government work” and that “the chat sessions after were also a good idea for followup discussion”.
