Alertness CRC Limited

The Cooperative Research Centre for Alertness, Safety and Productivity (Alertness CRC) is an industry focused research program aimed at developing new products and approaches to improve alertness for individuals and across organisations including

- New shift scheduling and workplace design techniques

- Novel alertness/fitness-for-duty assessment devices

- Individualised programs for better sleep health

- Customised lighting integrated with sleep, work and alertness assessments

- New ways to diagnose and treat disorders suitable for consumers and occupational groups

Dr Andrew Tucker
General Manager Research & Development 
Your interests

We would like to meet with organisations interesed in the deployment of alertness (fatigue) management tools to shiftworking occupational groups and consumers.

A key goal of Alertness CRC R&D activities is to provide outputs that are operationally relevant to industry and consumers. We are interested in connecting these research outputs to industry and/or consumers through collaborative partnerships.

ANSTO

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisationis home to Australia’s nuclear expertise. 

At the heart of ANSTO’s research capabilities, there are a multi-purpose research reactor (OPAL) and a suite of accelerators, including the Australian Synchrotron . As a Federal Government agency, ANSTO provides policy advice to Government on all matters relating to nuclear science, technology and engineering. It supports Government in undertaking its international roles and obligations.

The research reactor OPAL facilitates specialised research using a growing suite of neutron beam instruments at ANSTO’s Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) at Sydney. This is complemented by the Australian Synchrotron in Melbourne with its beamlines using synchrotron radiation. Consequently, ANSTO scientists apply neutron scattering and X-ray techniques to solve complex research and industrial problems. The complementarity of the techniques, neutron scattering and synchrotron radiation, is applicable in a wide range of fields, such as chemistry, physics, materials science, engineering, earth sciences, life sciences and cultural heritage and fosters an inter- und multidisciplinary approach to research.

 In addition, ANSTO is home to Australia’s critical nuclear medicine manufacturing capabilities, it is estimated one in two Australians will need the nuclear medicines made by ANSTO. The mining industry relies on ANSTO to provide advice and technology to handle naturally occurring radioactive materials in mineral processing. ANSTO also provides expert advice on the safe treatment and disposition of nuclear waste and specialised irradiation services. 

ANSTO is home to Australia’s expertise in radiation monitoring and measurement, including maintaining the national standard for the Becquerel (the unit of measure for radioactivity) and detector development for medical applications.  It hosts the Environmental Radioactivity Measurement Centre (ERMC) which offers low level radioactivity measurement capabilities.

 ANSTO works in partnerships and collaborative ventures with national and international organisations. With our partners, we work together in research and education to addressing key scientific questions, making use of the various technological platforms available as well as the scientific areas covered, such as  life sciences, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, environmental sciences, materials and engineering, including modelling. Frequently, our partnerships are interdisciplinary including higher-education institutions, research agencies, industry and government agencies in view of stimulating joint activities for the advancement of science and engineering and, subsequently, innovation.

 

 ANSTO’s collaborations are with international and national partners and include joint research appointments, joint supervision of research students, staff exchange, use of equipment and negotiated arrangements specific to each partner, including joint grant applications, establishments of centres of excellence, and participation in research networks fostering a multidisciplinary approach to research.   

ANSTO is particularly connected with all Australian and New Zealand universities through the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE), providing researchers access to Australia’s nuclear science, technology and engineering expertise and landmark infrastructure which in turn, facilitates greater national science collaboration. In addition, ANSTO has strong international collaborations connected with important global research projects.

Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC - Climate Futures Group

The Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC is Australia's primary vehicle for understanding the role of the Antarctic region in the global climate system, and the implications for marine ecosystems. Our purpose is to provide governments and industry with accurate, timely and actionable information on climate change and its likely impacts.

The Climate Futures Group bridges the gap between fundamental climate science and the local adaptation needs of Australian industries, government agencies and communities.

We work in close consultation with industry and government agencies around Australia to develop targeted, fine-scale climate model projections to support operational decision making. Our clients include emergency services, hydroelectric companies, agricultural producers, alpine resort operators, forestry managers, wine makers and aquaculture producers. Our work draws on the collective expertise of world-leading climate scientists from across multiple agencies, including advisors to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Chage (IPCC).   Climate change will be a determining factor in the life of Australians for many years to come, influencing our prosperity to the tune of billions of dollars annually.  The work of Climate Futures is helping to ensure that Australia is well prepared for the future.

Dr Tom Remenyi
Climate Research Fellow 
Your interests

My research translates global climate science into useful, usable tools for operational and strategic decision makers in industry and government, with a particular interest in scenario stress testing of organisational strategy.  

I have experience working with industries such as: agriculture (Wine Australia), utilities (Hydro Tasmania, TasNetworks), emergency services (Tasmania Fire Service, Tasmania State Emergency Service), and tourism (the Victorian Alpine Resorts Coordinating Council). 

In each case, our capacity to transform the broad-scale global climate model outputs into fine-scale regional climate projections was critical to producing outputs of direct relevance and utility to our stakeholders.  The final outputs are carefully designed with input from stakeholders at the beginning of each project, with ongoing input through the project to mould research outputs and products to be fit for purpose. 

I am open to all new opportunities from any industry or sector, with specific interest in agriculture, utilities operations and management, as well as emergency services.
