Building on work done within and outside OFI, FOCI is achieving its objectives by carrying out a rich program of research, training and engagement organized into nine Work Packages (WPs), each clustered under one of the three core themes of safety, sustainability and inclusion. Four additional integration work packages (IWPs) are playing a key role in integrating findings across work packages and support wider and deeper public engagement with this collaborative, full-spectrum infrastructure regeneration/design/adaptation process. This is happening within  WPs through partner engagement with the research. Findings from WPs are also informing focused dialogues and the engagement of diverse public and Indigenous groups in the regeneration/design/adaptation of infrastructures through not only the co-design of research but also art, theatre, music, film/video and puppetry.
