2022 Annual Meeting – Day Two

2022 Annual Meeting – Day One
August 31, 2022
2022 Annual Meeting – Day Three
September 2, 2022

On this beautiful Hawke’s Bay morning David Johnston, QuakeCoRE's Associate Director, opened the day’s sessions with an overview of Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE.



Associate Director Anthony Hoete and Tūmanako Fa’aui took us on a journey through their varied kaupapa Māori projects in the Mātauranga Māori: Kaupapa Māori session. Anthony and Tūmanako (both of University of Auckland) co-lead Disciplinary Theme 5: Mātauranga Māori and Earthquake Resilience with Christine Kenney. 

“Be on the left of the bang” Dave Gawn, Chief Executive of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) – gives a useful military-inspired analogy in disaster preparedness and resilience. The message here was to be in the reduction and readiness space to make any future response and recovery that much stronger.


The real star of this session had to be Allana Hiha, the Mana Ahuriri representative, sharing relevant whakatoki / proverbs with attendees, and perhaps the chocolate fish she shared with lucky members of the crowd afterwards too. Truly sharing the bounty of her kete with others.

The ever important Poster sessions to share research amongst peers. The calibre of posters keeps on improving with every cohort. The Poster Abstract book is available online here.


A word from our sponsor. Hearing from Jo Horrocks about Toka Tū Ake’s recent name change and the drivers behind it.

We thank Toka Tū Ake for their continued support and sponsorship of the Annual Meeting.


The prestigious Directors’ Award was given to the QuakeCoRE Emerging Research Chapter Leaders to recognise the time, energy, and commitment our QERC leaders have put into their Chapters over the last three years during the Covid-19 pandemic. The support provided to their fellow postgraduate students was immeasurable.

Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE Directors’ Award recognises individuals who show significant dedication and service to the mission and values of QuakeCoRE

Congratulations and thank you to each and every QERC Executive Team member who has made a valuable contribution.
