Oysters Australia (OA)

Oysters Australia (OA) was established in 2011 and is the national peak body working to further the interests of approximately 550+ individuals and businesses located mostly in NSW, South Australia and Tasmania with small production occurring in Western Australia and Queensland. 

 

Industry Partnership Agreement
The FRDC is a key partner for planning and investment in the research, development extension needed to achieve its vision. OA works closely with the FRDC and research providers to focus resources into the RD&E needed to address current priority investment areas. RD&E investment planning and project realisation is undertaken through a collaborative process between OA members and research providers, with priorities developed and agreed at Annual General Meetings (AGM) and half yearly conferences.

 

Research Priorities

Research, Development and Extension Plan

OA has developed a Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Plan that provides a framework to identify and invest in key strategic research needs of OA stakeholders. See the plan.

 

Call for Applications

The FRDC invests through a flexible approach. Part of this approach allows the Research Advisory Committees (RACs), Industry Partnership Agreements (IPAs) and Subprograms to call for applications based on their priorities up to three times per year in November, April and August – to see whether this IPA has put forward any priorities in the current call for applications see – here.
