AgriFutures Tea Tree Oil Program Targeted Open Call
AgriFutures Australia (AgriFutures) is seeking the services of an individual or organisation to deliver effective and efficient industry extension and engagement services that will develop a stronger and more resilient tea tree oil industry. This is an exciting opportunity to create genuine change and be involved in an innovative and forward thinking industry.
Working across the Australian tea tree oil industry, the aim of the project is to increase adoption of best practice management and innovative research and development (R&D) outcomes related to improving productivity, profitability and sustainability of tea tree oil businesses. The project will facilitate the extension and adoption of AgriFutures Tea Tree Oil Program’s R&D investments to support a sustainable future for the industry. The project will improve communication, cooperation and collaboration between growers, researchers, industry stakeholders and government bodies.
The aim of this project is to:
- Provide AgriFutures with a quality extension service that benefits the Australian tea tree oil industry.
- Facilitate the adoption of R&D outcomes resulting from the AgriFutures Tea Tree Oil Program.
- Improved communication within the direct tea tree oil industry and externally to industry stakeholders.
The project will work closely with the Australian Tea Tree Industry Association (ATTIA), who are providing in-kind support for this project. Support includes mentoring and fostering development and growth over time, resulting in an extensive understanding of the tea tree oil industry from planting through to marketing.
The project will report to a Project Steering committee led by AgriFutures. This committee will collectively monitor project progress against aims, respond to feedback to prioritise tasks and ensure the project delivers value for the tea tree oil industry.
Applications to the AgriFutures Tea Tree Oil Program opportunity closes 12 noon (AEDT) Tuesday 15 December 2020. It is anticipated the date of commencement of the project is March 2020.
