SENSE-T ATTRACTS INTERNATIONAL BACKING AND $10 MILLION FOR TASMANIAN RESEARCH

02 MAY 2013
A $10 million international research collaboration led by Tasmania's Sense-T, which is based at the University of Tasmania (UTAS), may provide answers to people on where their food comes from, how it was produced and if it’s safe.
Sense-T's Pathways to Market project has been granted $2.5 million from the Australian Research Council under the Industrial Transformation Research Hub scheme. This adds to the $7.6 million Sense-T already raised for the project from industry and research organisations.
The Pathways to Market project will initially focus on two food products and track their distribution through the supply chain and into Asia. Researchers will delve into what consumers want to know about where their food comes from and how it affects what they buy. This information will be available to producers, processors and distributors to help them bring new products to market.
Grey Innovation is proud to be a development and commercialisation partner with Sense T.
