The CPRC is an independent research organisation which undertakes research to inform policy reform and business practice changes to improve outcomes for consumers.
Working across the government, regulatory, business and community sectors, the organisation is committed to an evidence-based and human-centred approach to research.
Having developed our research priorities, we are now focused on developing project proposals that seek to answer the key research questions for these areas. We will conduct policy research internally as well as in partnership with other agencies. We are also committed to promoting, translating and supporting the work of others in improving outcomes for consumers.
We will develop collaborative partnerships as an effective way of building shared understanding around policy reform issues. We welcome organisations working within the fields of CPRC Research Areas to contact us to get involved.
Later this year, the CPRC will establish a Grants Program through which organisations will be able to apply to conduct research which works to improve consumer outcomes. The nature of the grants provided and the process for applying for grants will be set out in the next newsletter.
We will also shortly be revitalising the former CUAC Stakeholder Reference Group – with a firm commitment to continue regular and deep engagement with community and consumer policy experts. Details of the composition of the new Reference Group will also be set out in the next newsletter.
