The Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Functional Grains (The Functional Grains ITTC) will transform the Australian Grains Industry from a commodity-based industry into a highly efficient industry producing high quality food and feed products that exceed market expectations.
The Centre is supported by the Australian Government, through a $2.15 million ARC grant. The Centre is also supported by industry partners:
The Functional Grains ITTC is an initiative of the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation.

The Functional Grains research strengths include, rice, pulses and canola.
The Functional Grains ITTC is supported by industry partners.
The Functional Grains Centre is looking to attract strong candidates.
