The University of Adelaide’s Centre for Global Food and Resources has a global reputation for creating and applying knowledge on secure and resilient global food and resource systems.
Since its formation in 2014, the Centre has built a strong track record in:
- Delivery of academic programs focused on tackling global food system and resource issues and opportunities.
- Specialised research from a multidisciplinary team with academic, industry and policy experience.
Based in the heart of Australian primary production and agribusiness, we understand both the capacity and drivers of success of Australian producers, agribusinesses and supply chain participants. We are cultivating the next generation of agribusiness and resource professionals, through a unique mix of business fundamentals, practical experience and global connections. Our unparalleled agricultural and wine research, and training facilities also extend to campuses located at The Waite Research Institute and Roseworthy College.
This unique Centre conducts world-class innovative interdisciplinary research, using a whole of systems approach. We address economic, policy, agribusiness and social issues affecting global food systems. In addition, we connect relevant partners ranging from industry organisations and enterprises to government institutions and policy makers. Our networks extend across the globe with strong research partnerships with agricultural, food, health and environmental scientists, as well as industry, government and NGOs.
Our priority is achieving healthy, resilient and productive communities and landscapes, which are food, water and resource secure.
