The Foundation is based at 5 Del Park Road, North Dandalup. It is located on farmland in order to better facilitate trials and real-world applications in agriculture science.
With support from the Australian Government (through its Building Better Regions Fund) and others, an extension of facilities was launched in 2019 and should be completed by July 2021. This research hub and “incubator” village is intended to accommodate researchers, inventors, start-up businesses, laboratory staff, live-in students and trainees, providing a base for employment.
In addition to facilities, the Foundation and others provide support to scientists and inventors, including Innovation Awards. Application information is outlined below.
