Hort Innovation Chestnut Research

The Chestnut Industry Research and Development (R&D) program is facilitated by Horticulture Innovation Limited (Hort Innovation) in partnership with Chestnuts Australia Inc. Funding for Hort Innovation research projects comes from an industry statutory levy. The Australian Government provides matched funding for all Hort Innovation’s R&D projects. Projects are managed by Hort Innovation and applications are needed. Click here to visit the HIA website
In appraising project applications, Hort Innovation takes advice from the Chestnut Industry Strategic Investment Advisory Panel (SIAP) as well as its own professional staff. Guiding the spend on R&D is the Industry Strategic Plan. Hort Innovation puts out a regular call for projects and offers guidelines to assist researchers in their application.
