Planning for the future APPF


The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF) is one of Australia’s designated national research infrastructures. We provide open access to world-class plant phenotyping technology and expertise to accelerate the development of new and improved crops, and more sustainable agricultural practice.

As we develop our plans and provide input to Government on the next National Research Infrastructure Roadmap, the APPF is engaging with stakeholders, partners and collaborators to seek ideas, comments, feedback and thoughts. As we enter this next phase of major investment decisions around research infrastructure, we want to ensure the APPF of the future strongly aligns with the needs and priorities of the agricultural sector.

The Engagement Hub provides a number of ways to engage and have your say. We have recently completed a detailed stakeholder survey and you can see a summary report in the Key Documents section. Check our latest survey, quick poll, post your comment and our Chat Space apps. We welcome and encourage your input.

Consultative survey - key insights

Over the summer of 2020/21, we ran an online consultative campaign that included a survey, ideas wall and chat space. The primary aim was to seek input from you, our research stakeholders, to be fed into the development of the next National Research Infrastructure Roadmap, and the APPF’s own plans for our future.

Stakeholder engagement workshops begin

The APPF is consulting stakeholders across the country in discussions and considerations that will ultimately shape our re-bid for NCRIS investment beyond 2023.

  • Strengthening the APPF's impact

    The APPF supports the science and practice of agriculture including plant breeding, cropping, grazing, horticulture and intensive plant industries. If we want to have a revolutionary impact on sustainable agriculture, food production and human health, we will need to build on our strong core, leveraging existing and new partnerships to harness and drive advances in technology.
