UQ-IITD Workshop on Agriculture Technology


The purpose of the workshop is to identify areas of complementarity within the broad area of AgTech that IITD and UQ could collaborate on and partner with other organizations such as the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in India and Australia.

Recognizing the huge potential in the AgTech space, both UQ and IITD are exploring the concept of co-creating a new AgTech campus/school in India to expand the current engagement through the UQ-IITD Academy of Research (UQIDAR) with expanded opportunities across research, teaching and learning, entrepreneurship, innovation and commercialisation.

Through the workshop, the institutions are keen to explore potential models and tangible activities including the following:

• Joint PhD Projects through UQIDAR
• Collaborative research activities
• Joint Master’s program in AgTech
• Industry Engagement
