Shape the next 10 years of agriculture and food research, development and extension in Queensland

Agriculture and food is an important part of the Queensland way of life and a vital contributor to the state’s economy.

The Queensland Government needs your help to inform the development of a roadmap and action plan, to shape the next 10 years of research, development and extension (RD&E), to grow the agriculture and food sector.

The roadmap is part of the Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland initiative—a $405 million suite of programs designed to drive innovation and create the knowledge-based jobs of the future.

To ensure we address the key issues, we have released a discussion paper that profiles the existing landscape and asks a range of questions on how we can better manage and take advantage of RD&E opportunities.

Your experience and foresight is valuable—we will use it to direct future RD&E to improve economic productivity, environmental sustainability and generate jobs in the sector.

Have your say on the discussion paper

We want your feedback on the topics raised in the discussion paper to help us shape Queensland's agriculture and food RD&E roadmap and action plan.
