Advance Queensland is supporting a multi-million dollar Agtech and Logistics Hub in Toowoomba. Through a consortia, led by FKG Group, with foundation partners including the University of Queensland, the University of Southern Queensland and the Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise, the hub will grow the agriculture industry through the development and adoption of innovation and technology.
Located at the corner of Vision and Witmack Roads at Wellcamp, the hub facilitates connections, collaboration, partnerships and opportunities to solve the agricultural industry’s biggest challenges.
The hub works across the food and agriculture supply chain, from creating more sustainable growing practices to efficient logistics services and new consumer products. This involves connecting startups, SMEs, industry and researchers on industry-led projects, trialling new techniques and specialized equipment (such as virtual reality, robotics and drones) and access to commercial networks.
The Agtech and Logistics Hub creates opportunities for agtech startups to develop solutions directly with industry and researchers, to create real value for our agriculture sector and to export tech to the world.
The development of the hub is being supported by a $3 million investment over three years from Advance Queensland.
