Applications are open for the Sugar Industry Travel and Learning Awards (STLA) through Sugar Research Australia (SRA).

The STLA offer successful applicants up to $7,500 for an individual award or $10,000 towards a workshop or event.

These awards encourage innovative thinking and activities that can clearly demonstrate benefits to the Australian sugarcane industry. The activity should be aligned with the outcomes and strategies of the current SRA strategic plan.

The STLA are part of SRA’s investment in building the Australian sugarcane industry’s knowledge and capability.

Dr Michael O’Shea, General Manager of the Research Funding Unit, said SRA was seeking applications for innovative learning ideas.

“The awards cover a range of possible activities that will deliver benefits throughout the Australian sugarcane industry,” Dr O’Shea said.  “This includes, for example, skills-development activities that could include visiting farm trials and assessing new farming methods, visiting the growing or processing sectors of other agricultural industries, conference or workshop attendance, and then sharing this information back with industry via an adoption activity.

“These awards are on offer to all industry participants, including growers, millers, and service providers including researchers.”

The Awards recognise that it is crucial that the Australian sugarcane industry continue to develop its skills and expertise, which includes looking at other industries and other countries to generate new ideas and innovation.

“SRA is committed to investing in research that can be adopted on farm or in the mill, providing a tangible outcome for sugarcane growers and millers. All applications will be assessed in that context of their benefit to the industry,” Dr O’Shea said.

Applications close August 31, 2018.
