In order to transition RRAP interventions from research and development to deployment we must ensure the technology, logistics, regulatory approvals and community support are in place well in advance.
The Translation to Deployment team is working to enable these prerequisites for intervention deployment, focusing on:
The key outcomes of the Translation to Deployment Subprogram are:

This project will map the high-level critical path to achieve RRAP deployment, which include technical as well as funding, regulatory, community capacity building and social license goals. Critical outputs and inputs, timelines, dependencies, decision points and stage gates will be mapped for each intervention scenario.
This project provides engineering support for the RRAP R&D Program, including mechanical, chemical, electrical, civil/structural, data and integrated engineering. The project’s key objective is to ensure seamless research and technology handover to restoration implementers and practitioners.
