Science & Technology Conference
The 7th National Research, Scientific and Technology Conference is being jointly organised by NARI and the PNG University of Technology. Dates are November 8-10 2016. Venue is NARI Campus, Lae. Download the conference brochure here (pdf).
The Technical Mission of the Republic of China to PNG (ROC-Taiwan) has been a partner to the country's agriculture development since the signing of an agricultural extension agreement in 1990. This partnership has expanded to NARI since the institute's birth in the late 90s and both have collaborated on a range of agricultural R&D avenues ever since.
The European Union funded Agricultural Research and Development project was successfully completed with a final closing workshop at NARI HQ in Lae from February 4-5 2016.
This five-year (2011-2015) regional project was about the 'Generation and adaptation of improved agricultural technologies to mitigate climate change-imposed risks to food production within vulnerable smallholder farming communities in Western Pacific countries (PNG, Solomon Island and Vanuatu)'.
