Mixing scientists

The precinct hosts 190 scientists from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, CSIRO, and The University of Queensland through the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation. Another 550 people are co-located on the Queensland Health Forensic and Scientific Services campus.

Co-locating these researchers makes better use of resources and expertise and is helping to foster new ideas. The precinct also offers a pathway for industry and agribusinesses to access a wide range of relevant research and diagnostic solutions in one location.

Facilities

The key facilities of the precinct are:

  • a pilot plant facility with an extensive range of food-grade processing equipment for handling seafood, meat, dairy, and horticulture products (available to other public and private research organisations through collaborative research projects)
  • workspaces and laboratories for food science, animal nutrition, biochemical analysis and consumer and sensory research
  • animal biosecurity research and diagnostic testing facilities.
