On Thursday, 5 March 2015, veski travelled to the Goulburn Valley to launch our new sustainable agricultural fellowships with The Hon. Jaala Pulford MLC, Minister for Agriculture and Minister for Regional Development.

As part of this exciting new chapter for veski, we are encouraging farmers, researchers, scientists and industry leaders to work together to stimulate and further develop Australia’s food and agricultural industries with innovative solutions being funded through these new fellowships.

Expressions of interest must be submitted by Thursday, 16 April 2015 via the veski website and will be reviewed by the veski sustainable agricultural advisory group consisting of farmers, industry, philanthropic and government representatives and scientists. 

Our second veski inspiring women professional development & networking event continues the conversation: gender equality - it's not a female issue, it's an everybody issue. Numbers are strictly limited and registrations with an accompanying male will be given priority. [Register now]

veski will soon call for applications for a new round of veski innovation fellowships. In the meantime, veski is encouraging expressions of interest for specific, targeted and potential senior female veski innovation fellows outside of the traditional call cycles.  [Contact veski to discuss a potential candidate]
