Funder: Federal – Agriculture
Grant Background: Smart Farming Partnerships is an open, competitive, grant opportunity to support substantial, complex projects that are to be delivered in consortium partnerships to trial, develop and implement innovative tools and practices.
The purpose of Smart Farming Partnerships is to foster sustainable natural resource management innovation. Smart Farming Partnerships deliver against the Australian Government’s policy of using innovation to cultivate more sustainable, productive and profitable agriculture, forestry, fishing and aquaculture industries; protect Australia’s biodiversity; protect and improve the condition of natural resources (in particular on-farm soils, water and vegetation); and assist Australia to meet its national and international obligations.
The purpose will be achieved through substantial projects, funded, at least in part, by grants, that deliver against either or both of the outcomes:
- Outcome 1 – Innovation in sustainable resource management practice
- Outcome 2 – Innovation in capacity building and promotion of sustainable resource management practice.
