We operate a contestable investment process to encourage researchers, and research organisations from the broader sugar research community and other sectors, to bring their best ideas to our industry.

The investment process is managed by the Research Funding Panel, an independent skills-based Panel appointed by the SRA Board.

The Panel ensures that through a rigorous and robust evaluation of all applications, only those research projects that address industry issues and national priorities are funded.

With accountability for all SRA-funded projects, every dollar invested in research will be used wisely to produce knowledge and practices that can be adopted on-farm and at the mill.
