GOYDER INSTITUTE CONTINUES SHAPING THE FUTURE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA

South Australia’s Goyder Institute for Water Research has welcomed a decision by the South Australian Government to extend its funding for a further four years.

Goyder Institute Director, Dr Michele Akeroyd, said the Government’s decision would enable the Institute to continue its valuable work and help the State maintain its position as a world leader in water research.

“The Goyder Institute has proven its value as an independent expert science advisor to Government on water related issues,” she said.

“We have delivered significant research achievements across industry, environment, urban water and climate change.”

Established in 2010, the Goyder Institute helps deliver expert scientific advice to Government in a format which helps shape policy and decision making.

The organisation is a partnership between the South Australian Government through the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, and the CSIRO, Flinders University, the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia.
