Call for RD&E proposals to benefit AU forest growers

Friday 17 Feb 2023

Forest & Wood Products Australia (FWPA) invites RD&E proposals to advance research of benefit to the Australia’s commercial forest growers, aligned with one or more of FWPA’s programs:

Program 3 – Assisting value chain optimisation

Program 4 – Increasing resource availability and reducing risk

Program 5 – Impacting decision-making and industry capability

FWPA’s forestry research, development and extension (RD&E) Investment Plans were developed in consultation with Australia’s commercial forest growers to inform investment in RD&E activities. From the investment Plans, the Priority Topics were identified as the key targets for investment.

RD&E priorities

Proposals must either:

1. Advance one or more Priority Topics identified in the Investment Plans, or
2. Advance RD&E outside of the Priority Topics where the prospective researcher can demonstrate significant support by Australia’s commercial forest growers.

Successful proposals will reflect an understanding of the current status of knowledge in relation to Priority Topics. A list of relevant recent and current projects funded or supported through FWPA is available.

Term and commencement

Proposals are invited for projects of up to three (3) years’ duration and commencing in 2022/23. If it is demonstrated by the proposal that a longer duration is warranted, projects of up to five years may also be considered.
