The composition of the Board is now well placed to assist with areas such as commercialisation and intellectual property management, change-enabling, stakeholder management and research strategy. These skills will be vital to ensure the success of SmartCrete CRC in enabling solutions through research to the issues and challenges facing the concrete industry.
The company has set a fast pace in opening its approvals process to proposals and developing in-house policies and procedures ensuring that it creates a balance of expectations for all stakeholders – industry, government and academia.
