NY97016/NY98007 - Queensland Nursery Industry Development Officer

This project has clearly demonstrated that industry will embrace and utilize a dedicated position servicing their industry. NIDO projects are seen by industry as a position that is focused on their cropping system and in contact with the real issues as they see them. The NIDO project is further enhanced when industry ‘owns’ the position which allows a free flow of communication and increased adoption of relevant industry R&D outcomes.  The appointment of a NIDO addressed the overall issue of technology transfer. It provided a continuing focal point for the industry with regards to existing R&D and ongoing activities.
