2023 Science to Practice Forum

Vic Drought Hub - Farmland 1
    • Tue, June 06 2023
    • Thu, June 08 2023

The Science to Practice Forum brings together producers, researchers, government, industry and the community to explore the innovative tools and practices helping our regions prepare for future drought. It also showcases the work of the eight Drought Hubs around the country.


The 2023 Science to Practice Forum will look slightly different to the 2022 event, with each of the 3 days targeted toward a specific audience.

The Forum remains a hybrid event, with online presentations during the main part of the day, and local workshops held at hub nodes during the afternoon.

Day 1, Tuesday 6 June – Research and Development

Day 2, Wednesday 7 June – Producers

Audience: farmers and producers, trusted agricultural advisors, and so forth. The program will be focused on human-impact stories; opportunities under the FDF for producers, farmers and farm advisers

The final day of the Forum is aimed at people involved in community and/or social projects, and drought policy. This is in response to the positive feedback on the community and/or social content from the 2022 event.
