Pearl Consortium

The Pearl Consortium IPA was established in 2011 and currently extends until 2021. The IPA is headed by the Paspaley Group that represents a consortium of eight pearling companies that have co-invested directly with FRDC to improve existing production technology and develop new technologies. This partnership has proved to be very beneficial, with significant progress made in a number of areas that have been implemented to improve industry performance.

 

Industry Partnership Agreement
The FRDC is a key partner for planning and investment in the research, development extension needed to achieve its vision. The Pearl Consortium 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 Pearl Consortium 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

The Pearl Consortium has developed a Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Plan that provides a framework to identify and invest in key strategic research needs of Pearl Consortium 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
