The objective of the RA Fellowship is to develop the future leaders of our industry.

The 2023 research task was “What is one technical innovation we can introduce to our industry that will help us achieve RA policy objectives and open up opportunities for new streams of talent in our workforce”.

To support this goal, and as part of the annual program, our Fellows were asked to work in groups on a research project that demonstrates their:

  • understanding of key issues and challenges faced by industry,
  • ability to work together on a collective response,
  • ability to apply presentation skills taught during the mid-year workshop;
  • ability to communicate a convincing argument to key stakeholders, and develop feasible implementation solutions for RA.

Group 3 from QLD was announced as the 2023 winner, receiving an invitation to share their initiative with the RA Network.   

Group 3 presented a research report into ‘Digitising Before You Dig Australia’.

Group 3 comprised:

  • Anita Mumford – AECOM 
  • Brendan Rutter – Mott McDonald 
  • Clarissa Campbell – HDR 
  • Georgia Robazza – Transurban 
  • Ho Yee Lam – BG&E
