We operate a dynamic and open model of innovation. Ideas generated in research are coupled with testing of potential outcomes (improved products and practises) through early engagement with stakeholders in clear delivery pipelines.
Our strong IP portfolio is testimony to our success in realising innovations and reflects the strength and relevance of our research. We support a culture of innovation by challenging and supporting our own researchers to identify potential innovations early in their research and by hosting collaborative “hackathons” and “ideas labs” with partners that bring different expertise or potential solutions. We also fund innovation projects that are supported by entrepreneurial mentorship and collaborate with industry and AgriTech Centres in many innovative, industrially-oriented and translational research projects.
