Strategic Investment Priorities
Through the Waite Research Institute and the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine, the University of Adelaide is committed to ensuring the Waite will continue to be a global leader in agricultural research, development and teaching, and attract the best international researchers and students.
The University of Adelaide’s presence at the Waite Campus is primarily embodied in the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine. The Waite Research Institute works alongside and supports the School by developing and funding specific projects, such as the Vineyard of the Future, by building its general research capacity and by promoting the Waite’s research outcomes and activities.
The Waite Research Institute supports both the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine and the collective Waite Campus community within a strategic and investment framework aimed at:
- Advancement of the University's (AFW) research capabilities, income and outcomes
- People Development and Attraction
- Broader Waite Campus initiatives
- Enhancing understanding of the Waite and its capabilities with the public and the broader scientific community
