2022 Nuffield Australia National Conference

Mon 12-Thu 15 Sept 2022, hours vary

​The annual Nuffield Australia National Conference is a meeting point for previous Nuffield scholars, investors and the members of the broader agricultural industry. It’s a high-profile forum for the announcement of incoming Nuffield scholars and public presentation of returning scholars’ research.

At the 2022 Conference in Tamworth, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • hear the announcement of the 2023 Nuffield scholars;
  • learn about innovation and technologies relating to a broad range of agri-related topics from returning scholars;
  • exchange knowledge and information with industry leaders; and
  • network with the Nuffield alumni who, over 70 years, have been ‘bringing the world home’.

National Farmers’ Federation President and Chair of the Future Food Systems CRC Board Fiona Simson will deliver the George Wilson Oration at the Awards Dinner on the Monday night.
