Waite Partnerships and Collaboration
The Waite Campus at Urrbrae, 7km south of Adelaide’s CBD, is Australia's leading research, education and commercialisation precinct for agricultural science.
Part of a bequest to The University of Adelaide by Peter Waite (see Waite History), the Campus is world-renowned for its strengths in plant science and breeding (particularly cereal crops), landscape and soil science, and wine/viticulture.
A distinctive feature of the Waite Campus is the co-location of several of Australia’s premier research and development organisations, enabling greater collaboration and the sharing of infrastructure and expertise. Cooperation between the organisations on the Waite Campus has led to the Wine Innovation Cluster, amongst other joint initiatives. The WRI seeks to enhance and build on the opportunities arising from co-location at the Waite.
The Waite Campus is home to headquarters, divisions or nodes of the following organisations:
