Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture

Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture

The Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture is a joint venture between the University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government.

This partnership has brought together the human and physical resources of the Tasmanian Government with the scientific research and teaching capacity of the University of Tasmania (UTAS) to create a centre of excellence in agricultural research, development, extension, education and training. TIA’s activities are funded by the Tasmanian Government, the UTAS, agricultural research, development and extension organisations, resource management organisations, other granting bodies and industry.

TIA has a dynamic team of scientists and technical experts many of whom are internationally renowned, with access to world-class facilities and equipment. TIA has strong links to other research, development and extension institutions in Australia and around the world.

TIA has a state, national and international mandate. At the state level, we work closely with our partners in government and industry to improve the performance of Tasmania’s agricultural sector, across all industries and value chains. At a national level we show leadership in research excellence and partner strategically with many other organisations around Australia. Internationally we are rapidly increasing our research portfolio, influence and student numbers.
