Finalist: Outstanding contribution to policy development

In 2012 Professor Julie Cotter established the University of Southern Queensland’s Sustainable Agribusiness Research Program (SARP) to address the business research needs of the agricultural sector.

By working with scientists and engineers to provide the business case for agricultural innovations, the agribusiness team fills an identified gap in

predominantly sciences based agricultural research.

Julie applies her accounting and finance expertise in assisting farm businesses and associated off-farm enterprises to make evidence-based financial management decisions.

In collaboration with the Australian Farm Institute, Julie is developing an online tool for farmers to assess and compare the financial implications of a range of emissions

reduction activities.

She is the director of the Australian Centre for Sustainable Business and Development and a member of the leadership team of the Institute for Agriculture and the Environment at the University of Southern Queensland.

Julie is a Chartered Accountant, a Fellow of CPAAustralia, and a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
