Australian forestry research proposals sought

Friday 30 Sep 2022

Forest and 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.

You can find more information about how to submit your proposals on the FWPA website.

Proposals are invited for projects of up to three (3) years’ duration, commencing in either 2022/23 or 2023/24. If it is demonstrated by the proposal that a longer duration is warranted, projects of up to five years may also be considered. To facilitate engagement with growers, a two-stage process will be used.

Full proposals must be submitted by by 12 noon (Australian Eastern Daylight Time - AEDT) on 16 November 2022.

Review by the Scientific Advisory Panel – all full proposals will be evaluated by the Executive Committee of the Grower Research Advisory Committee and FPWA’s Scientific Advisory Panel. Applicants will have opportunity to respond to questions and comments from the Scientific Advisory Panel between early December and late January, which may include an invitation to meet virtually with the Panel if required.

Applicants will be notified whether their proposal has been successful by early March 2023. If you would like to discuss this call for proposals, please contact FWPA’s Forest Research Manager, Jodie Mason, on (+61) 427 357867 or
