The government is holding engagement sessions and launching an online survey to gather feedback about the future of agriculture research in Alberta
“We are working with farmers to determine their research priorities. This is an opportunity to transform how we do research and attract investment from the private sector. I see world-leading agricultural research happening here, either by leveraging work happening in existing facilities or building brand new ones.” Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry
You can participate in this process by completing the online survey before January 31, 2020 or by attending one of the six public engagement sessions scheduled throughout the province.
Registration is required.
The government will be seeking input on:
- what farmer-led research means to Albertans
- farmer-led research priorities
- governance models for delivering farmer-led research
