Australian Wool Innovation works to support the growth and development of the Australian wool industry by providing skills training, educational resources and programs, leadership initiatives and practical workshops for woolgrowers and wool industry professionals.

Through our state-based woolgrower networks and collaboration with industry experts and organisations, we provide support and opportunities to the stakeholders in the industry, from established woolgrowers and shearers to the next generation, to enhance their expertise and adoption of innovation.
