The Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) has the mandate to progress the agricultural industry of Tasmania through the provision of industry relevant research and development, encouraging the industry adoption of findings, and through the delivery of educational offerings relevant to Tasmania.

TIA is a joint venture between the University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government and formed in 1997 by bringing together the human and physical resources of the Tasmanian Government with the scientific research and teaching capacity of the University of Tasmania.

Since then, TIA has evolved to become a dynamic team of 100+ scientists and technical experts, many of whom are internationally renowned - they are supported by a highly capable team of professional staff.

TIA has access to world-class equipment and facilities around Tasmania, and its location in this remarkable and pristine environment enables researchers to explore key questions about sustainable resource management and productive landscapes. From the advantages that Tasmania offers us, we deliver to the world.

Close relationships across the agriculture and food value chain at a local, national and international level ensure TIA is connected with stakeholders and that research and education priorities support industry needs and aspirations.

Professional Experience Placement Units administered by TIA are:

KLA379 Agribusiness placement
KAA315 WIL in Science
