Partners of the Northern Western Australia and Northern Territory (NWANT) Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hub welcomed Minister for Agriculture and Northern Australia David Littleproud in Darwin during July.

The Minister expressed his strong support for the Hub program and his vision for the role of regional universities in both supporting the hub program and driving agricultural research and innovation.

Charles Darwin University (CDU) Provost Mike Wilson and Acting PVC Research and Innovation Steve Rogers briefed the Minister on the plans for the Hub at CDU’s Darwin Waterfront Campus.

Mr Rogers said the Hub would play an important role in leading future agricultural research.

“Primary producers will be able to help drive and shape future research in agriculture that will directly benefit their livelihoods and operations,” Mr Rogers said.
