The development and convergence of technologies is occurring at a faster rate than regulation. Policy and regulation have not necessarily kept pace with the rapid advancements in some technologies, and policy makers must balance opportunities with public safety.

As a cross-sectoral issue, governments, Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs) and industries have a role to play to proactively understand the regulatory barriers and opportunities that may restrict or prohibit the agriculture sector’s ability to adopt technology or conversely safeguard access to it.

This project delivers information to equip government, industry and RDCs with a better understanding of regulations needed to manage the adoption and uptake of emerging technologies, as well as the opportunity cost of getting it wrong.
