National Primary Industries Research Development
and Extension Framework
Through the Primary Industries Ministerial Council
(PIMC), the states and Northern Territory, rural Research
& Development Corporations, CSIRO, and universities
are jointly developing the National Primary Industries
Research, Development and Extension (RD&E)
Framework to encourage greater collaboration and
promote continuous improvement in the investment
of RD&E resources nationally.
This initiative was developed on the basis that Australia’s
primary industries cannot afford a fragmented or
duplicative RD&E system if they are to continue to
be sustainably productive. Australia’s approximately
$1.6 billion annual RD&E investment in primary industries
needs to be focussed, used efficiently, effectively and
collaboratively. The framework provides the structure
and institutional arrangements needed to strengthen
national research capability and better address cross
sectoral and sectoral research and development.
The Dairy Moving Forward (DMF) process is the dairy
industry’s response to the PIMC initiative. The DMF
initiative is to ensure that the dairy industry will have a
more coordinated and collaborative approach to
RD& E and that national research capability will be
focussed, used efficiently, and effectively to achieve the
best outcome and uptake by the industry.
The governance of DMF is through the DMF Steering
Committee. The DMF Steering Committee is Chaired by
Australian Dairy Farmers and comprises:
›› Australian Dairy Farmers
›› Australian Dairy Products Federation
›› Dairy Australia
›› Department of Primary Industries Victoria
›› Geoffrey Gardiner Foundation
›› Universities involved in Dairy Research
›› Regional Development Victoria
›› Regional Development Programs
›› United Dairy Farmers Victoria.
