ACIAR's investment in bilateral research over the past 22 years has more than paid for itself, as revealed in a review of returns to ACIAR's bilateral R&D investments. The study determines that returns in benefits to end-users throughout the Asia-Pacific, from less than 10 per cent of ACIAR's project investment, have surpassed the total bilateral investment of $1.1 billion over two decades.
