Horticulture Innovation Australia (Hort Inovation) is the grower-owned Rural Research and Development Corporation (RDC) for Australia’s $9 billion horticulture industry. It invests more than $100 million in R&D and marketing programs annually. This presentation will focus on how Hort Australia invests industry levies and its new Strategic Co-Investment Fund, which has a number of key themes that give guidance to investment in industry-wide priorities. It will also provide an update on the new Hort Innovation funnel and how Hort Australia is looking to engage with researchers. Finally, it will introduce Hort Australia’s new operating model and procurement process.
The seminar will be followed by a networking morning tea.
