CRC for Low Carbon Living - 7 Year Review
For the last 7 years, the Australasian (iron & steel) Slag Association has partnered with the CRC for Low Carbon Living. This project was Australia’s leading research and innovation hub dedicated to driving the nation’s built environment sector towards a globally competitive low carbon future.
The CRC for Low Carbon Living expects to exceed all of its founding goals in carbon emissions reduction, national economic benefit, education, planning and policy.The CRCLCL has allowed academics the opportunity to undertake end-user-driven research projects, conducting vocational training programs and supervising HDR students. As a network they will generate new initiatives and best practice and encourage low carbon uptake and action in the broader community.
UNSW reports that as a result of the increased industry appetite for research developed by the CRCLCL, over 90 urban building experts from business, government, and planning and research institutions have committed to establishing a Future Cities CRC in Round 21 of the CRC Program.The ASA would like to thank all those involved with the CRC for Low Carbon Living. So much has been achieved over the last 7 years and our work will blaze the trail for more important research in the future.
