Investment Plans and Priorities
FWPA Investment Priorities
R&D investment priorities are chosen because they provide quantifiable benefits for industry. A core premise of the R&D program is that it helps the industry to increase the market share and value of its products, while improving the sustainability and economic contribution of the sector to the overall Australian community.
FWPA Investment Plans
Each R&D priority has, or is being, developed into an investment plan based on industry and research community input. This process ensures that the investment plans focus on specific industry outcomes and benefits that can be delivered through effective technology transfer and industry adoption of R&D project outputs.
By their nature these investment plans are prescriptive in design and work to inform both industry and the research community of the key areas of future forest and wood products industry research prioritised against the impact and benefits available to industry through the timely adoption of research outputs.
