We want to share information and provide an open book of our goals and desired outcomes. The more we share, the more we learn.
Action and results come from a commitment to real collaboration. Reaching producer-led goals involves the constant exchange of knowledge, ideas and talent. Together, we’re led by the thinking that there is always a better way. Find resources here to help shape your work.
Funding for Researchers
Agricultural research is in the midst of an exciting and rewarding time. We connect researchers with opportunities as they work to solve real-world industry needs.
Expanding Alberta’s frontiers of agriculture research by developing solutions that benefit farmers, ranchers and consumers alike depends on understanding the problems and needs in the field. Connecting researchers to funding opportunities opens the door for collaboration and impact. Knowledge unites us—bringing producers and researchers closer to that common goal of working together to positively impact Alberta’s agriculture.
