RHopkinsFlying Start to 2008

ICE WaRM has hit the ground running in 2008; among other activities, hosting a five-city tour by Birdsall-Dreiss lecturer, Dr Bridget Scanlon, in early February.

It’s the first time the winner of this prestigious annual award, chosen by the Hydrogeology Division of the Geological Society of America, has visited Australia. Big audiences turned out at each lecture and the audio and slides of her presentation have proved to be popular features on the ICE WaRM website.
Dr Scanlon is just the first high-profile international visitor ICE WaRM is hosting this year – the next is Professor Ezio Todini from the University of Bologna in Italy, who will present a keynote paper to the Water Down Under conference in Adelaide in April.

Beyond these high-profile visitor and exchange initiatives, ICE WaRM’s education and training programmes are also enjoying greater popularity.

Enrolments are continuing to build in numbers and diversity. There has been another substantial increase in enrolments for the Masters programmes and there is growing interest – especially from international water management organisations – in ICE WaRM’s short courses, study tours and professional development programmes.

The Living Laboratories series is generating productive practical research collaborations, as well as developing greater cross-organisational understanding of the major water resources initiatives and their research requirements.

ICE WaRM has welcomed three new members to our team at the start of the year – Project Coordinators Amber Welk, Alexandra Radley and Jackie Watts.
