AgCatalyst 2020: Facing the future

20-21 October 2020

Luna Park, Milsons Point Sydney

Registration details to follow in early 2020.

There'll be plenty of action in Sydney but we're also mixing it up with satellite AgCatalyst events at three of our regional sites: Armidale, Narrabri and Townsville.

We'll be inviting the next generation of STEM professionals to help us address challenges ahead for our agri-food industries.

We expect over 600 people to attend in Sydney plus many more regionally, including from businesses, investors, peak industry bodies, producer groups, research funders and providers, and policy makers.

AgCatalyst will showcase cutting edge work with partners, nationally and regionally, to prepare our agriculture and food sectors for a challenging future; from building drought and climate resilience to meeting consumer demands for foods of the future.

What's in store for AgCatalyst 2020:

  • Cocktail function on the evening of Tuesday 20 October overlooking Sydney Harbour.
  • Networking breakfast just prior the event starting in Sydney on Wednesday 21 October.
  • Satellite AgCatalyst events in Armidale, Narrabri and Townsville.
  • Dynamic exhibition area showcasing research to prepare us for the future.
  • Primary and high school STEM challenges.
  • Science pitches of new and inspiring research from CSIRO's bright young minds.
  • Presentations on different models to deliver innovation.
  • Art exhibition at the intersection of agri-food science.
  • Networking lounge.
