Nuffield 2021 Virtual National Conference
Welcome to the Nuffield Australia 2021 Online National Conference. Our flagship annual event will be free and online this year, allowing us to bring the world of agricultural innovation and leadership to your home, office, or tractor cab!

Hear from an exciting line-up of industry leaders from both Australia and overseas. Explore how Australian agriculture can achieve a better and more sustainable future for all in the world, and bolster our contribution by aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We will introduce the 2022 Scholars whose passion and ideas will change industries for the better. There will also be opportunity to network with these established and budding agricultural leaders.

Scholars, investors and broader agricultural industry, join us in this very special year as Nuffield Australia celebrates our 70th anniversary. Since the first Nuffield Scholar was selected in Australia in 1951, we have been 'Bringing the World Home' to take Australian agriculture to the next level.
You can choose to attend one or more of the following webinars.
