20/09/2016: A first for SA Pork CRC industry placement program

Alice Weaver, whose PhD was supported by the CRC For High Integrity Australian Pork, is the first person to be awarded an Industry Placement Program appointment under the South Australian Government’s $500,000 funding to the Pork CRC.

Dr Weaver officially commences as a Technical Officer at Jeff Braun’s ‘Myora Farm’ at Mt Gambier, South Australia, on August 3 and will be responsible for the implementation and coordination of the piggery’s research and development activities.

Pork CRC CEO Dr Roger Campbell said the SA Government funding was a welcome boost to Pork CRC’s existing successful Industry Placement Program (IPP), where it placed supported graduates with industry, in particular with its participants.

Graduates are then trained in the business of pork production and remain active in research and Pork CRC activities.

“It is a partnership where funding and training is shared, young people get a start in industry and industry benefits from their enthusiasm and injection of fresh ideas and knowledge, which is often cutting edge science.”

“It’s a win-win for everyone and we thank the SA state government and its Minister for Science and Information Economy, Hon Kyam Maher, for recognising this and stepping in to further fund and advance the initiative,” Dr Campbell said.
