Enhancing the data, tools and policy translation resources on ‘CARDAT’; the Centre for Air pollution, energy and health Research (CAR) Data and Analysis Technology (DAT) platform.
The overarching research question of this project is to identify the best way to configure the existing CARDAT platform to stimulate translational science (i.e. moving research findings into policy and practice) in air, energy and health research. Within this broad question are the separate issues of identifying a) the best data and tools to share, b) the key gaps in available data and tools, and c) what policy translational resources CARDAT should make available for public health decision makers. An example of translational science is the co-driven development of health impact assessments for a suite of alternative air pollution exposure control strategies by environmental epidemiologists, public health and urban planning stakeholders done on the platform, by the participants.
Who is this project for?
- Government agencies and regulatory bodies (commonwealth, state and local)
- Research groups with multi-disciplinary teams and knowledge broker staff
- Research data infrastructure providers (e.g. the NCRIS funded Eco-cloud and TERN CoESRA)
- Community advocacy groups
What does this project enable?
This project will enable more high quality data-based papers and reports to be produced in a co-driven way by Australian researchers and policymakers. A key barrier that will be overcome is the efficiency of data use and related communications across intersectoral groups.
