Keep up to date with what's happening at NWGIC through our news items and newsletter.
NWGIC have a great deal of pleasure to inform you that the University of Adelaide (led), Charles Sturt University and NSW DPI collegial application for renewal of the ARC ITTC for Innovative Wine Production has been successful. This is testament to the hard work and dedication of our researchers, and the importance of industry focus for our research outputs. CSU and NSW DPI invested a considerable amount of time and resources to the application process working closely with colleagues from the University of Adelaide, along with a very substantial greater commitment of cash and in-kind investment during the project lifecycle.
I would especially like to thank the CSU Faculty of Science, DCV-RDI and NSW DPI for their collective investment into this research initiative.
What does this mean for the Centre?
The new ARC ITTC for Wine Production is funded for 5 years commencing 2018.
We will be looking forward to employing 2 post docs (1 x 5 years 1 x 3 years) and will have funding for 3 PhD students (stipends and operating) during the life of the new ARC Centre.
This excellent outcome will provide a number of benefits for research in the Centre including provision of expertise for metabolomics, transcriptomics and data analysis whilst addressing important industry problems and provide the opportunity to train the next generation of grape and wine scientists.
