Lincoln University: The agriculture and food sectors of Tasmania and New Zealand, which have much in common, are set to benefit from the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Lincoln University and the University of Tasmania. The MoU was signed as part of a three day Tasmanian Government-led delegation visit to Lincoln University.

The MoU formalises current research collaborations and paves the way for new research opportunities in dairy, vegetables, viticulture, apples, pasture production, and food safety and innovation.

Another key potential collaboration will be in education and training, including through joint training of postgraduate research students and joint exploration of new flexible pathways into agriculture studies at the University of Tasmania.
