Building a strong and trustworthy communication network to report unusual signs of disease will facilitate Australia's response to a foot and mouth disease (FMD) outbreak. In a four-year study, the FMD Ready Farmer-led surveillance project adopted the Agricultural Innovation Systems (AIS) framework, modelling transformation of how knowledge is co-c...

The capacity to rapidly identify and respond to suspicion of animal disease is fundamental to protecting the integrity of the Australian livestock industry. An incursion of a nationally significant endemic, emerging or exotic animal disease could be disruptive and economically damaging for the industry, broader community and national economy. To co...
A transdisciplinary pilot study with Australia's livestock industries is bringing multiple stakeholders together as equal partners, to examine the complex problems around animal disease management. These problems include disease surveillance and on-farm biosecurity practices. The pilot groups are established in industries susceptible to foot and mo...
Under increased scrutiny by its funders, the CGIAR continues to search for ways of translating research excellence into innovation and developmental impact. Several approaches have been suggested that recognize the interactive nature of innovation. While these have been deemed useful, it is the deeper institutional change agenda that has been a bot...
Companion volume of case studies on agri-food sector transformation
Blog, discussing the emergence of Asia as a hotpot of innovation and the implications for Australia's own innovation capacity
This workshop report is a summary record from the second workshop convened by the ISPC/CSIRO Agri-food systems innovation and partnership initiative, and held from 27 to 29 June at ICRISAT in Hyderabad, India (Annex 4). The report attempts to capture, in brief, the deliberations of the participants (Annex 5), including key outcomes and follow-up ac...
The CSIRO Agriculture and Food & the CGIAR Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC) Secretariat are collaborating to explore the nature of agri-food systems innovation and impact. These 15 case study summaries were developed as part of this research and to contribute evidence on the nature of innovation and impact processes in different c...
The Science Commercialisation Partnerships (SCP) project explores approaches to strengthening research and technology being launched into the market through science commercialisation approaches and research-industry partnerships, in Vietnam’s agriculture and food sector. Activities include: 1. Connecting research to market This pathway is about piloting different ways for research and business to work together to commercialise science and technology, and to solve known industry challenges. SCP is testing multiple approaches for partnering – from traditional approaches like licensing and contracting, to non-traditional approaches like regional innovation clusters and graduate-industry programs in universities. The experiences and insights from SCP will be used to scale successes and systems to other research institutes beyond the program. 2. Building commercialisation capability This pathway is about building skills, experience and institutional capacity in science commercialisation and industry collaboration in Vietnam’s public research institutions. It addresses both institutional interest in building these capabilities, and political interest in supporting commercialisation and collaboration across the country. Examples include training and mentoring in global best practice for commercialising agriculture and food technology for sustainable outcomes, and co-developed guidance for national and institutional policies. 3. Scaling for sustainability and impact This pathway is about creating sustainable impact beyond our pilot activities. It brings together what we have learned from SCP, what we know about leverage points in the innovation system and Vietnam’s emerging policy needs for science, technology and innovation. SCP’s unique policy contribution is in commercialisation of agriculture and food research, supporting Aus4Innovation’s focus on innovation as part of science and technology policy. Examples of current activities include: - Developing recommendations for national policy makers, donors and research organisations, based on success, challenges and lessons from SCP capacity and commercialisation activities; - Supporting NATEC’s annual and ten-year science and technology planning; - Supporting the Ministry of Science and Technology monitoring and planning using evidence and recommendations for science commercialisation for social and economic impact; - Sharing experiences from Australia to support the development of effective approaches to science commercialisation and collaboration for Vietnam.
Capacity building, research and policy engagement to strengthen collaboration between public research organisations and agribusinesses in Indonesia in order to incubate and deliver technology and business solutions appropriate to smallholder farmers.
CSIRO and the Secretariat of Independent Science and Partnership and Council (ISPC) of the CGIAR have an on- going collaboration to explore the nature of agri-food system innovation, the role of research within this and the way different types of innovation processes lead to impact. The purpose of this initiative is to support a wider collaborative process that helps the development and application of explanatory principles, guidance, and tools to improve the impact effectiveness of investments in agri-food system innovation.
