Young agricultural innovators: Australia needs you

Australia’s young agricultural scientists, innovators and researchers are being invited to submit their agricultural research project ideas for a chance to share in up to $286,000 in grant funding available at the 2019 Science and Innovation awards.

Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud said the Science and Innovation Awards recognised the regional innovation that drives rural industries.

“Research and innovation will help us capitalise on global food demand,” Minister Littleproud said.

“Each winner from the 13 industry award categories will receive a grant of up to $22,000 to help with their work or study in Australia’s agricultural industries.

“I encourage passionate young scientists, researchers and innovators to submit the ideas they have to improve the productivity, competitiveness and sustainability of their industries.”

Applications close on Friday 12 October 2018. The recipients of the awards will be publicly presented as part of the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) Outlook 2019 conference in Canberra.
