Nursery and Garden Industry Australia is offering financial support opportunities for TAFE, Honours, Masters and PhD students undertaking research relevant to industry in 2013, through its research linkage program.
A mail out was conducted recently advising educators of the opportunities that can be provided to students by the Nursery and Garden Industry.
Aligned to the Nursery Industry Strategic Investment Plan, the Nursery Industry Research Linkage Program encourages study in key areas such as plant production, biosecurity, plant physiology and urban horticulture. All of these research areas will produce benefits for the wider industry.
Successful applicants will be encouraged to engage with industry through presentation of findings and will be expected to provide written reports at the conclusion of their research.
The program offers students an excellent opportunity to further their careers in a dynamic and progressive industry.
