Sir John Crawford Address
Ballroom, Realm Hotel, Barton
The Sir John Crawford Memorial Address has been held annually since 1985 in honour of the remarkable Australian in whose name the Crawford Fund was established. He contributed at the highest levels to the development of Australia and other countries, and passionately supported international agricultural research for development. This year’s Sir John Crawford Memorial Address is titled ‘The Future of Our Food’ and will be presented by Professor Louise Fresco, President of the Executive Board of Wageningen University and Research Centre, and member of the Steering Committee of the FAO High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition presenting insights on where we stand in understanding the future of food.
Our specially styled networking dinner enables participants to meet colleagues and make new connections with a wide variety of peers from across industries and regions in an enjoyable and more relaxed format than a formally seated dinner of previous years.
