CCAA Academics Forum 2019

The CCAA Academics Forum 2019 was held at the Pullman Sydney Airport on 26 February. The forum is an important opportunity to review the research being undertaken in a range of tertiary academic institutions in Australia, as well as discuss the research needs for the Australian cement, concrete and aggregate supply industry.

It was attended by a number of technical personnel from the various member companies of CCAA and provided an ideal opportunity to engage with these personnel to further opportunities to examine and research specific issues for these companies.
