Project summary

The Building better smart monitoring networks for food quality and safety project provides an exciting opportunity for academics, students and industry from China and Australia to meet and develop a pathway for ongoing collaboration in technological monitoring approaches to food quality and safety.

This project aims to provide an avenue for Australian organisations to demonstrate their capabilities in this growth sector by developing a lasting collaboration between Australia and China. To foster this collaboration, it is planned to hold a week-long series of workshops at Changzhou University for Chinese industry, academics and students, showcasing Australia’s innovative technological approaches to food quality and safety along the food chain, from farm to plate.  This will form the basis for the development of an international training and research hub facilitating annual opportunities for exchange visits for Chinese and Australian organisations
