Abstract

Established in 2018 with grant from the Queensland Government’s Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and start-up funding from the participating partners, the Rural Economies Centre of Excellence (RECoE) is a collaboration between the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), The University of Queensland (UQ), James Cook University (JCU), and Central Queensland University (CQU) - four Queensland universities whose collective activity covers the state.
RECoE provides high quality, independent research, support and capacity building focused on resolving the pressing problems facing Queensland’s regional, rural and remote economies. As a solutions-focused, applied research and extension facility, RECoE fills a major gap in rural economic development.
Over the last three years, RECoE has undertaken impact research and translation activities organised around five major areas: the development of economic tools for analysis of rural economies; strategies for boosting regional and rural innovation; optimising supply and value chains for competitive advantage; rural and regional governance and policy development; and research translation, sector capacity building and engagement.
