CCSG is headed by a director and three professorial research chairs. The centre’s professors play a lead role in the development of the centre’s research program while also managing selected projects and monitoring research performance. Activities are guided by two advisory bodies which include members from UQ, the CSG industry and the Queensland regulator. The centre engages researchers from a variety of schools and centres to deliver individual research projects.
