Downunder Section


History of the Section

The Downunder Section was formed to represent the Cereals & Grains Association membership in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and nearby Pacific Islands. It provides a link for cereal scientists based in the region to the broader international communities of the Association. 

The goals of the section are to

  • Provide a forum for discussion of regional cereal science issues
  • Facilitate and encourage involvement and access for the section members to t​he global activities of AACCI International
  • Organize focused workshops and symposia relevant to local interests
  • Maintain a collaborative relationship with other organizations representing grain sciences and other food sciences, and develop programs in collaboration with them when interests overlap.

Membership of the section can be combined with a number of different member​ship options. For information on how to become a section member ONLY, please contact Larisa Lara Cato on how to join.
