The Agri-tech Innovation Expert Mission travelled to Australia in February 2019.

Innovate UK’s Global Missions Programme is one of its most important tools to support the UK’s Industrial Strategy’s ambition for the UK to be the international partner of choice for science and innovation. Global collaborations are crucial in meeting the Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenges and will be further supported by the launch of a new International Research and Innovation Strategy. The Global Expert Missions, led by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), play an important role in building strategic partnerships, providing deep insight into the opportunities for UK innovation and shaping future programmes.


The cultural similarities between the UK and Australia are one of many reasons behind the long history of research collaboration between the two countries. Whilst the UK and Australia benefit from a strong agricultural research base, it is important to understand the fundamental differences between production systems on opposite sides of the world. These different approaches go some way to explaining our complementary strengths.
