Policy and Advocacy

We work closely with our members, government, corporates, research institutions and industry to advocate on behalf of the Agritech industry to help accelerate innovation, collaboration and enable the growth of Agritech in Australia, for prosperous future for all Australians.

Take a look at what we are currently working towards below:

AusAgritech is currently  preparing a response to NBN's discussion paper, Connecting Australia’s agricultural landscape

 

The discussion paper seeks feedback from industry about the possible creation of a Quality Assurance mark for network extension devices that may assist landowners to better plan for and select the infrastructure necessary to extend an nbn™ network signal to connect machinery, sheds, working areas or larger landscapes.

 

Please register your interest in contributing to AusAgritech's submission here. 

SAVE THE DATE for the National Agritech Summit (virtual) on Friday, 18 February 2022, 10:00 am - 11:30 am AEDT (9:00 am - 10:30 am AEST) where all stakeholders in the Australian Agritech ecosystem will be invited to engage on important key topics with all States and Territories and this Association.

AusAgritech were thrilled to announce in November 2021 that Centre for Entrepreneurial Agri-Technology (CEAT) have come on board as founding members for the association. 

 

At this time, Tracey Martin (CEO, AusAgritech), Andrew Coppin (Chair, AusAgritech) and Owen Atkin (Director, CEAT) began discussions as to how the collaboration between CEAT and AusAgritech could forge closer links between Agritech organisations and the research capacity of Australia's universities. 

CEAT and AusAgritech could work together to forge closer links between agri-tech companies and the research capacity of Australia’s universities. Also a part of the discussion was how the ANU could work with AusAgritech to identify the regulatory settings needed to support and stimulate a vibrant agri-tech industry in Australia and beyond. 

 

Keep an eye out for upcoming events in 2022 which aim to directly address these issues. 

 

CEAT is supporting AusAgritech as a Foundation Member; this reflects our shared goal of fostering a world-class agri-tech industry and ecosystem in Australia.
