The Food Innovation Centre @Monash welcomes another fantastic partner!
Monash University and Bosch Australia have teamed up to create what they say will be an Australia-first smart agriculture research facility, which will include an agtech launchpad facility and development centre spread over one hectare at Bosch’s headquarters in Clayton, Victoria.
The two organisations say the facility will house a prototypical ‘smart farm’ and enable collaborative industry partnerships and research.
“The space will include cropping trials and early-stage prototype development, enabling the use of artificial intelligence, automation, robotics and advanced sensor technology,” the two organisations said in a statement.
“The facility will also become a key component of food and agriculture innovation at Monash which already includes the Food Innovation Centre, the Food Incubator, and the Australia-China Dairy Manufacturing Centre.”
