  1. Agriculture and food

    Removing barriers and improving supply and value chains for new and existing Northern agricultural industries.

  2. Tropical health service delivery

    Identifying new models and approaches, early detection, health seeking behaviour and mental health.

  3. Traditional Owner led business development

    Identifying new models and approaches and building an industry ready skilled workforce in the fields of agriculture, food and/or health industries.
