The Agricultural Innovation Hub has just seen its first start-up innovation project complete a guided discovery workshop designed to support an accelerated commercialisation pilot program as a part of the TNQ Drought Hub. Discovery workshops assess the viability of identified Ag Innovation opportunities from both a technical and commercial perspective, and fast-track the project through to translation funding.
The workshop saw key stakeholders participate in a facilitated workshop consisting of a discovery process to uncover and confirm the value of Electric Plant Growth, the competitor landscape and a establishing defined research sprint.
The Agricultural Innovation Hub Project Officer Lauren Tapp comments “It was great to see the framework in action and allowing a defined and targeted conversation to take place with the right people in the room. This pilot has the protentional to save a significant amount of time and money and will allow agricultural problems and challenges to be solved quicker. The sooner we provide producers solid opportunities and outcomes, the better”
