The Waite Research Institute (WRI) stimulates and supports research and innovation across the University of Adelaide and its partners that builds capacity for Australia's agriculture, food and wine sectors.

Open call for project funding

To kick-start an expanded remit and to stimulate new collaborations and activity, the Waite Research Institute is launching an open call for agri-food and wine related research project applications across the University. A total pool of $250K will be available to seed-fund both small and large projects that will lead to bigger initiatives and external funding.
