The Centre for Disaster Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) was established at the University of Melbourne in April 2014 to focus on conducting multidisciplinary research and training on disaster management and public safety both nationally and internationally.
The CDMPS currently has in excess of 50 researchers, over 20 affiliated members, produced over 100 publications since 2014 and expects to graduate six Ph.Ds. during 2017 – 18.
The presentation will provide an over iew of the current state of the mission-critical public safety communications ecosystem, its likely future strategic direction and the need for relevant and timely research to produce evidence-based policy to guide both public and private sector investment decisions.
The presentation will be linked to research material to be available at the University of Melbourne CDMPS exhibition space in the Comms Connect Exhibition.
