In the lead up to and during the 2022 Federal Election, the Australian Agritech Association Inc. (AusAgritech) will be seeking a commitment from political parties for $100M investment over 5 years to fund a series of projects that will enhance and accelerate the agritech sector, and realise a potential $40Bn per annum value accretion to the Australian economy.

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.

In light of the federal government’s recent commitment to work with agritech industry leaders through the National Centre for Digital Agriculture, the Australian Agritech Association (AusAgritech) calls on political parties to deliver on the objectives outlined in their 2022 Election Statement.
