The Government has agreed in principle to provide funding towards the rebuilding of science facilities at Lincoln University.
The funding has been welcomed as a crucial step in the creation of the Lincoln Hub, said
Graham Stuart, the hub’s chair.
“We are well on the track of developing the Hub, which will be a world class agricultural research facility where university, crown research agencies and the private sector will be collaborating to achieve great outcomes for New Zealand,” he says.
The Lincoln Hub partners are AgResearch, DairyNZ, Landcare Research, Lincoln University and Plant & Food Research.
Stuart said the capital support of Lincoln University – coupled with that pledged by AgResearch under its Future Footprint plan – will enable the hub concept to continue to develop as a collection of world class state-of-the-art buildings as well as minds and intellectual property, to best serve the primary sector.
