Speaker:  Professor Tom Measham, Research Director, CRC TiME

Abstract:  CRC TiME’s foundational portfolio highlighted that there is limited shared understanding of what post-mine transition means. There has been significant progress on biophysical aspects of closure, with need for a stronger focus on integration, scale and forecasting. To make further progress, it is important to recognise that post-mining transition is fundamentally about values.

With a background in human geography, he has over 25 years’ experience in designing and delivering integrated research programs focused on regional communities, the resources sector and transition.
