A number of the required Hub deliverables, including data management, knowledge brokering, communications and Indigenous engagement will be managed through specific strategies and plans that define the scope and processes for delivery of these key components. These key Hub documents will be integrated as part of the Department’s overarching and Program level communications strategies; clearly articulate how the Hub’s outputs, outcomes and impact align with the overarching Program Objectives; and align with the Hub’s Research Plans.


Collectively, these strategies outline the Marine and Coastal Hub’s pathway to impact (see diagram below).

  • Communication Strategy: provides direction in communicating the Marine and Coastal Hub’s interests, products and outcomes to researchers, research end-users and interested parties.
  • Knowledge Brokering Strategy: provides direction for facilitating the exchange of information between researchers, policymakers, managers and Indigenous organisations to generate shared understanding and to capture and transfer knowledge.
  • Indigenous Partnerships Strategy: provides direction for encouraging collaborative input and guidance from indigenous communities, the appropriate communication of Indigenous knowledge and respect for millennia of experience.
  • Data Management Strategy: provides direction for enabling pathways for how the Hub and its researchers will achieve findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable NESP research products.
