What we do
How can we help farmers grow more food using less resources? How do we make our agricultural systems more resistant to climate change? Can agricultural waste be processed into valuable, renewable products? These are some of the research questions being investigated by the Centre for Agriculture and the Bioeconomy.
Our research programs bring together an inclusive, multidisciplinary and outwardly-focused group of researchers with the capacity to deliver real-world solutions for our planet, our partners and our community.
We conduct research in food security, waste and governance, and develop technologies and processes for sustainable food systems.Read more
