PIRSA Strategic Partnership

Enabling the delivery of globally recognised primary industries research

The University of Adelaide has partnered with the Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA), and the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) to drive joint research activities in primary industries. 

The partnership aims to increase the volume, breadth and depth of collaborative R&D activity, from basic research to industry translation, extension and commercialisation.

By working together the University and PIRSA are supporting the growth, sustainability, and competitiveness of South Australian primary industries, food and wine.
