Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud has commissioned Ernst & Young to develop a strategic vision for the future of Australia’s rural innovation system.

 

Delivering a shared vision will require extensive consultation and input from a broad range of stakeholders. The project will involve more than 450 interviews and 10 workshops and will look overseas at other systems to ensure we capture the latest approaches and leading thinking on research, innovation and agtech development.

 

“EY will consult widely and then develop this shared vision for the future of Australian agriculture, and describe how rural innovation will drive the sector towards this shared vision,” Minister Littleproud said.

 

“I want all players from across agriculture, research and agtech sectors to contribute.

 

“The report will look at how to get the most out of Australia’s rural innovation system through spurring cooperation and collaboration, attracting capital from around the globe and developing our research ideas into cutting edge technology.

 

“Australia should have a world-class, modern and dynamic rural innovation system which attracts capital and delivers the results of research as real tools farmers can use.

 

“Our rural innovation system has helped farmers increase productivity over the past 30 years and needs to continue to do that as we move towards the NFF’s target of an agriculture sector worth a $100 billion by 2030.

 

“Let’s make sure Australia’s rural innovation system is ‘fit for the future’ and improve it through more strategic collaboration, improved pathways to commercialisation and by becoming a more attractive place for investment in research and agtech development.

 

“This is NOT a restructure of the RDCs.

 

“I want all players across the industry to contribute to this work so we all have a shared vision going forward. This should be something every farmer and farm-related business can be part of and get real benefit from – not a bunch of buzz words which mean nothing and help no-one.

 

“It’d be great to leave a legacy which delivers for Australia long after the next election. Nobody ever delivered anything great by focussing only on today.”

 

The new vision of Australia’s innovation system will be launched early next year.
