Applications open for grants to help agricultural innovation

APPLICATIONS are now open for the Federal Government’s 2022 Science and Innovation Awards grant program.

The program offers grants of upto $22,000 to individuals engaged in the agriculture sector, aged between 18-35.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin encouraged young researchers, scientists and innovators – in agriculture, fisheries and forestry – to submit a project application that addresses current industry challenges.

“We’re looking for projects which tackle issues in innovative ways and contribute to the ongoing success and sustainability of Australia’s agricultural, fisheries and forestry industries,” Mr Pasin said.

“This is a great opportunity for our best and brightest, living in regional Australia, to receive a leg up and really make a difference to their industries and their communities.”
