Charles Sturt University (CSU) welcomes today's announcement by NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) of the Global Ag-Tech Ecosystem (GATE), a collaborative technology and research facility based at Orange Agricultural Institute.

As Alliance Partners with NSW DPI in the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation and the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, CSU supports the further strengthening of the innovation network in regional NSW.

The GATE compliments the AgriTech Incubator at CSU in Wagga Wagga, due to be launched at 9.30am on Monday 18 September.

The AgriTech Incubator at CSU, which has been developed in partnership with the NSW Government's Boosting Business Innovation Program, aims to spark innovation and economic development in the Riverina by offering incubator programs, providing co-working spaces, fostering greater participation of women in entrepreneurial activities, and supporting SMEs to overcome R&D challenges through access to the University's facilities and expertise.

These incubators are an important part of the broader innovation ecosystem which CSU is fostering in regional NSW through the development of the AgriSciences Research and Business Park (AgriPark) in Wagga Wagga. The AgriPark brings research, collaboration, innovation and sustainability together in the heart to the vibrant Riverina region.
