A message from the CEO

Welcome to the Blue Economy CRC’s September update of our recent activities.

I hope you can sense the feeling of excitement across all our Programs as our research and training programs gear up and results begin to flow.

Events like the release of the report on Australia’s offshore wind potential with over 500 people participating in the associated webinar and the launch of our new M4 Wave Energy Project in WA are raising our profile.

Equally important, our investment in projects such as the development of a robust collar tie is already quietly delivering practical cost-efficient solutions to meet real-world industry challenges.

Working closely with our Participants, we are also busily developing new research projects and training opportunities. I look forward to announcing more of these over the coming months.

Finally, I’d like to make a special mention of the contributions of our departing Program leaders Mark Hemer, Beth Fulton and Leo Dutra. Their passion and commitment to the Blue Economy CRC have been critical in laying the foundations for a successful future. We wish Mark, Beth and Leo all the best and look forward to continuing to work with them on Projects in the future.
