From Innovation to Impact Workshop

From Innovation to Impact

Have you considered the transformative potential of your research or technology within the Australian grains industry?

Valued at $65 billion, this sector is ripe for innovation. Whether you're exploring bioengineering, robotics, or other cutting-edge solutions, your research/technology could reshape the future of agriculture.

In order for research to propel humanity forward it needs to make its way out of the lab and into industry, policy and society.

Join us for a two-day workshop to explore your research/tech solution's commercial potential in the grains industry.
