New Mallee Research and Innovation Centre opens


The Mallee Regional Innovation Centre (MRIC) in Mildura – a Mallee Regional Partnership priority – has been officially opened.

Combining the research capabilities of the University of Melbourne and La Trobe University, with the knowledge of regional partners including SuniTAFE, research at the new centre will focus on the key sectors of renewables, technology, agriculture, water management and sustainability.

The Victorian Government supported MRIC with $1.7 million in Budget 2018/19 and the centre was opened by Minister for Regional Development Jaclyn Symes.

In April, Mildura-born Rebecca Wells was appointed as Chief Executive of MRIC.
