One of the discussion points I seem to have with colleagues is how we can work smarter with researchers and what challenges could we promote (including data) that would allow a student to generate a project and work smarter with Government agencies.
I know we are looking at predictive asset management, land monitoring (remote), and infrastructure planning and delivery alignment which all require a view of infrastructure (planned and existing) as well as other information that helps understand impacts.
Has anyone had any experience with providing data to universities and forming research projects? Could this forum be used to help provide topics to universities and then delve into the data that is required?
Interested in everyone’s view on this.
