We work collaboratively on many projects with all levels of government and industry.
Cooperative Research Centres (CRC)
The Centres are a Federal Government initiative to solve industry problems, while also improving competitiveness and sustainability. This is achieved through collaborations between industry, research and community sectors.
Charles Sturt University involvement in CRCs
We are currently part of 3 CRCs:
- Food Agility
- High Performance Soils
- Cyber Security
The Food Agility CRC aims to empower Australia's food industry to grow its comparative advantage through digital transformation. The CRC will integrate the agile culture and processes of the digital economy through a whole-of-value-chain lens for fresh and processed food.
The approach is to share data to build brand, markets, jobs and exports. Teams spanning agriculture, food and technology-related disciplines and will maximise impacts for the food and agribusiness sector.
More information can be found on the Food Agility CRC website.
High Performance Soils
The CRC for High Performance Soils (CRC-HPS) will give farmers the knowledge and tools they need to make decisions on extremely complex soil management issues.
CRC-HPS bridges the gap between soil science and farm management. Our practical, real-world outputs will allow farmers to optimise their productivity, yield and profitability, and ensure the long-term sustainability of their farming businesses.
All Charles Sturt researchers can register to have access to the members area of the Soil CRC website.
Australia must be, and be recognised as, a secure and trusted place to do business. This will benefit the economy by enabling industry to attract and increase investment, trade and commerce. Industry is increasingly cyber connected and reliant on a secure cyber experience.
The Cyber Security CRC will deliver solutions that increase the security of critical infrastructure and provide cyber security solutions that benefit businesses and their customers.
More information can be found on the Cyber Security CRC website.
ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Functional Grains
The Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Functional Grains (The Functional Grains ITTC) will transform the Australian Grains Industry from a commodity-based industry into a highly efficient industry producing high quality food and feed products that exceed market expectations.
