Background and Relevance

The purpose of this project is to extend the communication component of the project “A National approach to health risk assessment, risk communication and management of chemical hazards from recycled water” by conducting a series of educational workshops to inform and educate industry professionals in the science and application of bioanalytical tools in water quality assessment and management.

The science has been significantly advanced by the previous project and one of the recommendations from the research was that opportunities to pursue knowledge transfer opportunities should be pursued expeditiously to assist knowledge uptake and transfer. In addition to the workshop presentations it is proposed to conduct two hands-on demonstrations of the bioanalytical laboratory techniques in Adelaide and Brisbane contiguous to the educational components.
