The 2016 ATSE National Technology Challenges Dialogue: Agribusiness 2030 will bring together Australia’s top agriculture and agribusiness leaders and innovators from research, industry and government to explore the opportunities and challenges for agribusiness in the digital age.
Agribusiness 2030 offers an unparalleled opportunity to discuss technology and innovation in the future of Australian food and agribusiness, and chart a course to realise its potential in a challenging environment.
Winning Community Support: Hear from experts on community acceptance of technology, such as agricultural biotechnologies; finance and investment in food and agribusiness; and the implications of technology for sustainable agriculture and communities in Northern Australia.
Profiting from the Technology Revolution: How can Australian agribusinesses make the most out of this technology revolution, and what barriers stand in our way?
Leading the Charge: Hear about case studies where the application of new technologies has helped strengthen and improve agribusinesses around Australia, and could help your agribusiness in the future.
Farming the Future: What ambitions and visions for change will the next generation pursue? What barriers stand in their way, and how can we help them succeed? Hear from a diverse panel of young researchers and agribusiness people about what they expect to see in the future.
Working with Climate Change: What impacts can Australian agribusinesses expect to see from climate change over the next 15 years? How can technology help Australian agribusinesses prepare for and adapt to these challenges, and mitigate their contribution to a global threat?
Grasping Agricultural Biotechnology: Biotechnologies offer amazing potential for the benefit of food and agribusiness around the world, including better breeding, resistance to disease, drought and heat, and improved nutritional value. What should we be on the lookout for over the next 15 years, and how can Australian agribusinesses make the best use of this diverse suite of techniques and technologies?
The newly branded annual ATSE Innovation Dinner will take place on the first evening of the ATSE National Technology Challenges Dialogue on 15 June 2016 in the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth Hotel.
The long-established Clunies Ross Awards, in recognition of the remarkable accomplishments of Australia’s science and technology achievers over the past 24 years, will be presented at the Dinner. To further enhance the award, ATSE will introduce three separate Clunies Ross Award categories: Entrepreneur of the Year, Knowledge Commercialisation and Innovation.
The 2016 keynote speaker is Professor Mary O'Kane, NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer. Join 400-500 leaders and representatives from industry, academia and government from across the nation in celebrating outstanding achievements in the application of science and technology for the benefit of the wider community.
