The Crawford Fund annual conference is made possible through the generous support of our conference sponsors.
After almost 30 years, our conference provides a special opportunity to maintain existing links and nurture new ones with the national and international community involved in food and nutrition security policy and research. It is also a high profile opportunity to demonstrate involvement in, and ongoing commitment and support to food security related issues of interest and benefit to developing countries and to Australian rural industries.
With a variety of sponsorship levels, you are able to profile your work and your support for agriculture for development at Australia’s key food security event. Our conference has a wide variety of audiences across sectors with an interest in agricultural research, development, policy and innovation.
