The agreements were signed by Australia’s Minister for Education, the Hon Dan Tehan MP, India’s Minister for Agriculture and Farmers welfare, the Hon Shri Narendra Singh Tomar, and Western Sydney University’s Vice-Chancellor and President Prof Barney Glover AO, at the Agriculture Excellence Research Forum held in New Delhi this week.

The University first established partnerships in 2018 with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) to provide knowledge exchange around food security, especially under the increasing challenges of a changing climate.

Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Barney Glover AO, said these new agreements will deliver important knowledge sharing between the two countries.

Through these partnerships, we are broadening the international impact of Western Sydney University’s research expertise in crop pollination, soil fertility and the use of innovative protected cropping structures and systems,” said Professor Glover.

Collectively these are areas of major concern in both India and Australia, and underpin both regions’ economic and environmental resilience.”
