Anna de Raadt Becomes Director of the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information in New Zealand

Anna comes to the CRCSI from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment in New Zealand, where she was Senior Sector Manager for Manufacturing and Resources, Science Investments.

“We are delighted to welcome Anna to the CRCSI executive team,” said Peter Woodgate, CRCSI Chief Executive Officer. “She brings with her a breadth and depth of knowledge and experience across government, research and industry sectors. This powerful combination can only add impetus to the already valuable contributions made by New Zealand within the CRCSI.”

“She recently engaged with those involved in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Spatial Plan, “Sea Change”, and has held previous roles facilitating commercialisation and demand driven research.

“We are fortunate that Anna will be starting in the position in time to attend the three day annual CRCSI Conference which this year is being held in NZ for the first time. This gives her a chance to meet delegates from the CRCSI family from across Australia and New Zealand.” The conference venue is the University of Canterbury, a core research partner in the CRCSI.

Dr de Raadt has an MBA and a PhD in organic chemistry from Victoria University and takes over from Mary Sue Severn.  
“I’d like to thank Mary Sue Severn for her contributions to the CRCSI and for building significant awareness and support for the NZ CRCSI node,” said Peter Woodgate.

CRCSI Backgrounder

The CRCSI is an unincorporated joint venture set up under the Cooperative Research Centre Program of the Australian Commonwealth Government. The purpose of the CRCSI is to build critical mass in research ventures between end-users and researchers tackling clearly articulated, major challenges for the end-users using the fundamental spatial technologies of global navigation satellite systems, spatial data infrastructures, data fusion and spatial feature extraction. The CRCSI brings powerful collaboration on all critical research and education issues that involve a spatial aspect. In doing so the CRCSI seeks to accelerate the take up of spatial science in key end-users, spawning major innovation and productivity advances in the key industry sectors of Health; Defence; Energy & Utilities; Sustainable Urban Planning; and Agriculture, Natural Resources and Climate Change. www.crcsi.com.au
