Uni Southern Queensland has $8m from the feds for a Drought Resilience Innovation Hub
Project partners are expected to kick in another $11m. Apparently, USQ will, “drive the uptake of new drought resilience technologies and practices and build collaboration with stakeholders across the region.”
USQ will, “also oversee the co-design with farmers and communities of innovative projects to ensure they deliver what is needed.”
Which is very wise – what with the Australian National Audit Office taking a dim view of project spending that don’t.
