Global leaders located in Brisbane, Australia
The NUE Lab, located at The University of Queensland, focuses on a fostering global collaborations to create a multidisciplinary approaches aimed at improving agriculture output and sustainability.
Our research centers on plant nutrition to support the Circular Nutrient Economy for a world without waste and pollution. Informed by nature and with tools spanning from ecology to biotechnology, we generate knowledge for sustainable bio-production in collaboration with industry and government partners.
Where Industry & Government Meet Science
Leading The Way
The University of Queensland hoasts world-leading agricultural scientists and researchers. Our facilities include a PC2 laboratory, temperature and humidity controlled growth cabinets, and climate-controlled glasshouses. Moreover, located 40 minutes outside Brisbane City, UQ’s Gatton Campus is equipt with first-class field-trial facilities.
One of our key innovation strategies is our cross-disciplinary approach. Our intra-faculty relationships allow us to understand concepts from every angle. This novel approach has led us to many different partnerships with private industry, international academic institutions, and government partnerships.
Our Primary Goals
Work with government and industry to ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for global agriculture
We work hand-in-hand with the people on the ground. We are the bridge between farmers and science.
Circular Nutrient Economy
We collaborate with world-class scientists and researchers to turn our global ‘linear’ model into a circular model which can sustain our rapidly growing population
