New business in NSW demonstrates value
The Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) announced today its expanding business opportunities in partnership with the NSW Land and Property Information.
Dr Zaffar Mohamed-Ghouse, the newly appointed CRCSI Business Development and Research Manager, will be located at LPI’s Sydney office and brings to the role hands on spatial experience from the research community, and strong client and business management.
“NSW Land and Property Information is looking forward to working collaboratively with the CRC for Spatial Information and their appointment of a NSW Business Development and Research Manager”, said Des Mooney, General Manager, LPI / Surveyor General of New South Wales.
“This partnership will enhance the NSW Spatial Information program through cooperative research activities and the development of business opportunities to demonstrate and realise the important role of spatial information and location intelligence across government, industry and the community”.
“We have a strong research presence in NSW particularly our projects in the Positioning, Spatial Infrastructures, Health and Planning areas”, said Dr Peter Woodgate, CRCSI CEO.
“Zaffar’s contribution to our future has come at a time where the significant flow of strong research outputs will increasingly shape the CRCSI's role into the medium and long term. Industry growth is a key priority for us”.
Zaffar will focus on generating collaborative research and distilling its benefits by working closely with the CRCSI’s NSW partners.
The CRCSI believes this strategic alliance will further strengthen existing NSW collaborations and build national and international business opportunities for the future.
Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information
The CRCSI undertakes user-led research involving spatial technologies to solve complex problems of national significance for Australia and New Zealand.
CRCSI research delivers major innovation and productivity advances in key industry sectors including: agriculture, natural resources and climate change; defence; built environment; and health through the delivery of spatial information across positioning, rapid spatial analytics and spatial infrastructures.
Our research activities since 2010 are expected to create an impact of over AU$750 million – a benefit of AU$2.50 for every AU$1 invested, with many of the benefits derived from CRCSI research delivering outcomes that reduce costs to end-users in collection, processing, delivery, maintenance and the usage of spatial information.
Our values emphasise collaboration in our relationships, creation of excellence in our research, and being transformational in our impact.
