Strategic Research & Development Plan 2012-17

Investment themes and outcomes

The GRDC Strategic Plan 2012–17 will focus on delivering benefits to growers. The GRDC recognises that impacts on grower profit and sustainability can be achieved through better delivery of the current outputs of R&D.

The GRDC is also aware of the need to balance the RD&E portfolio to generate the new information and technologies required for future delivery of innovation to growers.

To achieve this balance, the GRDC has designed six themes to focus the RD&E investment portfolio on the activities that will make the biggest difference and deliver the best return to Australian grain growers, the wider grains industry and the wider community.

The strategic approach is underpinned by continual evaluation, measuring progress against key indicators of success in achieving the planned outcomes of each investment theme.

Figure 4 shows the themes, as they relate to the GRDC’s overarching vision.
