Vision for Cotton RD&E Capability


In November 2016, the Network began shaping a Vision for Cotton RD&E Capability, to provide a motivating and unifying focus for on-going coordination of cotton RD&E capability by the Network members and others, and to inform Network members’ own strategies and plans.

The Network, its members and stakeholders undertook extensive work, examining where the Australian cotton industry is now and where we want it to be in the long term, the trends and expectations for changes to the workforce and the skills required for the future. Through this process, the Network imagined Australian cotton’s preferred future and the research capability the industry is going to need to achieve it.

The resulting Vision for Cotton RD&E Capability - to grow the exceptional research capability, integral to the future of Australian cotton and society - was released in June 2018.
