Science to Practice (Research Aim 1.3)

The Science to Practice workstream encompasses a variety of activities, some of which you are likely already familiar with! 

We really want to ensure that our work can help communities in Aotearoa and the southwest Pacific. Thus, we are incorporating engagement with stakeholders, communities, schools throughout our work. This enables us to ensure that what we are creating meets our users' needs.


We have a Stakeholder Advisory Group made of representatives from many of Aotearoa's emergency management groups and large industries who give input on what would be useful for them. This guides our tool development and implementation work.

We also realise that tsunamis and earthquakes affect all of you directly. Therefore, we offer public events and outreach in schools and develop educational resources for teachers. We also offer Rū, in-school TC-1 seismometers, to schools in Taitokerau. Check our events page for public events and our outreach and education page for more about the workshops we offer in schools and educational spaces. To learn more about Rū, see
