Farmer-led research engagment
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.
Share your feedback by completing the online survey by January 31, 2020.
