Six emerging leaders in agri-tech have been selected to attend evokeAG. 2020 – Asia Pacific’s largest agrifood tech event held in Melbourne on 18–19 February.
Sponsored by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Agri-Technology (CEAT), the scholarship recipients will have the chance to immerse themselves in innovation, connect with industry leaders and explore hot topics in global agri-tech.
“Emerging leaders were selected for their passion and diverse interests within agri-tech, including agronomy, sustainable farming practice, and software engineering,” said Professor Owen Atkin, Director of CEAT.
“We are proud to sponsor this incredible event – an event that showcases the latest in agri-tech innovation and brings people together to connect and collaborate,” he said.
The emerging leaders are:
- Jana Dixon, South Australia
- Matthew Champness, Victoria
- Jessica Fearnley, New South Wales
- Bobby Wen, Victoria, student at The Australian National University
- Amellia Redfearn, New South Wales, student at The University of New England

Each will receive a travel fund and entry to the event, and attend a Young Leaders evening to network with other scholarship recipients and innovators in industry.
The Centre for Entrepreneurial Agri-Technology is a joint initiative of The Australian National University and CSIRO, supported by funding from the ACT Government.
