Farmer-led research engagment

January 13, 2020

 Overview

 

We want to ensure agricultural research in Alberta is led by farmers and that Albertans are getting the best results for their investment.

 

To help transform how we do agriculture research in Alberta, we’re seeking input on:

  • what farmer-led research means to Albertans

  • farmer-led research priorities

  • opportunities for industry participation and shared leadership/ownership in the exploration and evaluation of governance models that deliver farmer-led research

These changes are an opportunity to conduct world-leading research in Alberta by leveraging work happening in existing facilities or building brand new ones and attracting investment from bio-tech companies.
