How does CCRSPI work?
CCRSPI focuses on collaboration, coordination and communication of the research agenda.
The CCRSPI partners work collaboratively to develop the CCRSPI Strategy, and identify key organisations and people that can deliver research outcomes. CCRSPI partners also collaborate to produce submissions on other proposed research, development and extension (RDE) frameworks and policy initiatives.
Research activity is coordinated across CCRSPI partners to help researchers and research users share information and scope new work. Where the partners agree there is an immediate research need, and it is clear that no other organisation is undertaking similar research and no CCRSPI partner wishes to undertake the work, the CCRSPI Secretariat can commission specific research on behalf of the partners.
CCRSPI is founded on primary industries communicating with each other so that knowledge and information can be shared. CCRSPI communicates RDE knowledge to individuals and businesses within the primary industries, while communicating the needs, activities, outputs and outcomes of primary industries RDE to governments and industry.
CCRSPI is governed by the CCRSPI Steering Committee, consisting of executive level representation from CCRSPI partner organisations.
This committee reports to the Primary Industries Standing Committee R&D Subcommittee and the Council of Rural Research and Development Corporations Chairs. It sets the strategic direction of CCRSPI; oversees the allocation of committed CCRSPI funding; identifies strategic research priorities; guides planning and coordination of CCRSPI activities; reviews the performance of CCRSPI; and promotes and represents CCRSPI to its partners and external stakeholders.
The CCRSPI Stakeholder Committee consists of managers of climate change research and policy from within each CCRSPI partner organisation. The Stakeholder Committee supports the Steering Committee by providing expert technical advice and insights, as well as membership for special committees.
