CSIRO, in collaboration with the University of Queensland, is offering 8 PhD scholarships for social researchers in the field of ‘Responsible Innovation’ for projects starting in the first half of 2019. There are projects on diverse topics, some of which might be of specific interest to the agri-food community, and which are being supervised from members of the Agri-Food Network.
