ARC Training Centre
for Innovative Wine Production
Welcome to the Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre for Innovative Wine Production.
Based at The University of Adelaide's Waite Campus, the ITTC for Innovative Wine Production has been made possible by $2.4 million from the Australian Research Council - Industrial Transformation Research Program, additional support from the Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) and $1.2 million in cash and in-kind support from the project partners. The Training Centre will provide new knowledge, methods and technologies as well as highly skilled PhD and postdoctoral researchers to tackle the main challenges for the Australian wine industry:
- Climate warming
- Water restrictions
- Changing consumer preference
- Rising wine alcohol content
In this way the industry will be better placed to make the wines that the market and consumers want.
The Centre represents a unique and exciting training opportunity for 12 PhD and 3 postdoctoral researchers to work closely with leading research centres and Australian and international companies from the wine and food sector. One of these postdoctoral researcher positions is supported by additional funding through the Australian Grape and Wine Authority(AGWA).
