Congratulations to Roger Fairclough on receiving the Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE, Directors’ Award 2023
This annual award is given to members of our QuakeCoRE whānui, to recognise significant dedication and service to the mission and values of QuakeCoRE.
This year’s award recognises the huge dedication and commitment of Roger in supporting the advancement of the Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE mission since its inception in 2016.
Roger has been involved in a wide range of QuakeCoRE activities, guiding the programme’s research direction at a strategic level. He has been generous with his time in reviewing and assessing research plans and RfP rounds. He has been actively involved in projects across a range of areas, particularly in the infrastructure space. Roger provides an important bridge between research and practice, offering a pathway into numerous government departments and infrastructure organisations. He has helped to initiate and nurture these relationships through various roles, supporting the translation of research into impact. Roger’s deep experience in the lifelines infrastructure and other resilience spaces has helped to align and leverage research across multiple research programmes, a difficult task but something that adds great value to the wider research eco-system.
Roger is regularly found in deep discussion with QuakeCoRE Programme Area Leaders, Assocaite Investigators and students at various events and is a regular attendee at the Annual Meeting. His enthusiasm for QuakeCoRE’s work is clear to see, and he is a big part of the success of many projects.
So this evening, we present the Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE Directors Award to Roger Fairclough, to acknowledge the time, energy and commitment that Roger has offered to QuakeCoRE.
