eXtension Governing Committee Moves Toward Australian Partnership

Australia

The Department of Environment and Primary Services Victoria and the Grains Research Development Corporation has contacted eXtension regarding interest in collaborating with eXtension to implement a similar model for the Australian Research, Development and Extension Framework for agriculture.

The objective of the collaboration would be to fast track the implementation of eXtension learning network pilots in the Australian grains sector and to develop a national business case and implementation plan for an Australian version of eXtension.

eXtension sees this as an opportunity to perhaps develop global learning networks from which people in Australia and the United States may benefit, as well as others throughout the world. The eXtension Governing Committee has communicated its interest in collaborating if certain terms and conditions can be met. Clearly, this is an exciting opportunity should it continue to develop.
