Every month or so, the department hosts research forums to hear directly from researchers about findings from their projects and what they mean for end-users. Department staff also present at forums on the latest policies and processes, and the research happening at their site/s.

If you'd like to be notified of upcoming forums, please send your name, organization, email address and request to ResearchServices@qed.qld.gov.au. Please note that the invitations are emailed out via Eventbrite.
