Workshop 3 – 26 September, University of Melbourne, Melbourne
On 26 September 2014, the researchers and industry partners meet each other for the third time at UoM (Graduate House, 220 Leicester Street, Carlton VIC 3053) to discuss their challenges and present their latest findings. MC for the day was Lu Aye from UoM.
Participants introduced themselves and their organizations. John Boland, the Project Leader, gave an overview of the day’s program. Conrad Philipp, (Post doc Research Fellow) updated on progress with the project.
The Industry and government partners attended the meeting included the city councils of Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, BlueScope Steel and Hassell. It was again a good opportunity to review milestones and explore the end-user needs anticipated by the various stakeholders. The meeting helped focus the project for the partners by looking at data not only from the central city districts, but to extend and compare it against data of the surrounding suburb regions.
All five PhD students working on different aspects of urban micro climates. Covering the 3 different states with two PhDs from UniSA, two from the University of Melbourne and one from UNSW.
Overall, the project is well on track and the first academic papers have been published in journals and presented at the 7th Making Cities Liveable Conference Kingscliff (NSW), 10 – 11 July 2014.
