AgriFutures Australia is seeking applications for the AgriFutures™ Chicken Meat Program Advisory Panel.

The AgriFutures™ Chicken Meat Program Advisory Panel consists of people with a range of skills and experience in the research, farming and processing sectors of the chicken meat industry, together with a representative from AgriFutures Australia.

The Panel, in partnership with AgriFutures Australia, provides recommendations on the allocation of research, development and extension funding for the AgriFutures™ Chicken Meat Program and meets, on average, three times a year either in person or via teleconference.

The key functions of the AgriFutures™ Chicken Meat Program Advisory Panels are to:

  • Advise AgriFutures Australia on the current state of the industry, and its RD&E requirements
  • Provide recommendations on short-listed research applications consistent with the research priorities identified in the AgriFutures Australia Chicken Meat Program Five-Year RD&E Plan
  • Advise on and assist with the dissemination, adoption and commercialisation of R&D.

Members of the Panel will be recompensed for their services to AgriFutures Australia at rates determined by the Commonwealth’s Remuneration Tribunal. Please note that Advisory Panels do not hold financial delegations. Panel members are entitled to sitting fees for meetings and travel expenses.
