The Cannabis Science and Technology Academy (CSSA) is to open a botany-related school in Melbourne, it has been announced.
Called Botany of Desire, the two-year-old school will provide botany training, advanced organic farming, sustainable manufacturing and the development of new technologies for the growing and processing of marijuana.CSSA has been established by the Federal Government to support the research, development and commercialisation of new products and technologies in the botany field, and to provide education and training to the Australian public.
“The CSSA is a global network of universities and research centres focused on botany,” CSSA president Dr Alan Gorman said.
“With the CSSA’s support, the Australian Institute of Botany will become the first international research organisation to offer botany education to students from around the world.”
We are excited to be part of this exciting new partnership, and look forward to building upon our knowledge in the field with our students and future research.
“The Botany School is the brainchild of CSSA President Dr Alan M. Gorman and his CSSA colleagues, who are working closely with Victorian Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to build the facility.”CSSA is delighted to be partnering with the Victorian Department for Primary Industries to build a botanical school in Victoria, which will complement the CSIA’s existing Botany and Botany Agriculture training program,” Dr Gorman added.”
Botany is one of the most significant areas of the Australian landscape, and the future of botany in Australia is incredibly bright.
“In our country’s botany history, Australia has been a centre of innovation and innovation.”
As a state, we have always been a leader in developing innovative products and solutions for growers and consumers alike.
“It is exciting to see our students now being able to learn from some of the world’s leading botanists and researchers.”
“I’m excited to see students from the CSI program now being inspired by the scientific research and the best practices that have been developed over the last 20 years,” Dr M.K. Tewari, the director of the Botany Institute at the CSIRO, said.
Dr Tewarian said Botany students will have access to an array of botanical knowledge and experience.
“They will learn how to use the latest analytical techniques to assess cannabis and other plants, the history of cannabis and its medicinal uses, and how cannabis is used in our food supply.”
Our students will also have the opportunity to experience the world-class facilities, laboratories and research facilities at the Botanical Science Institute, which is the first botanical research centre in the world, which includes the world famous Australian Institute for Botany (AIB),” he said.
The Australian Botanical Association (ABCA) said it was pleased with the development.”
This is a very significant move for the Australian Botany Association, and an exciting development for the future, as it will allow students to experience botany as part of their degree,” AIB director Professor David Anderson said.
