Poultry research proposals progress to next stage

Welcome to another edition of eChook.

Poultry CRC research for 2010 onwards is now that much closer with members of the Science Committee and End-User Advisory Committee now finalised.

The selection process for research proposals is merit-based, as it is in the current CRC. Research proposals will be assessed on the basis of their scientific merit by the Science Committee and then assessed by the End-User Advisory Committee in relation to the applicability and utility of the proposed research to industry and other end-users. As usual, the final decision will rest with the CRC Board.

The membership of the Science Committee comprises the CRC’s Research Manager, Program Managers, CEO, the Chair of the End-User Advisory Committee and experts in the areas of food safety, environment, diagnostics, vaccines, eggs and welfare. Membership of the End-User Advisory Committee includes representatives from the various industry sectors, namely egg, chicken meat, turkey, breeders and vaccines.

These committee structures reflect the Poultry CRC’s end-user focus, which we will uphold in every aspect of our operation.
