NWP launches research centre to support applied research on agriculture, forestry


Northwestern Polytechnic has launched the Agriculture & Biosciences Applied Research Centre (ABARC). The applied research facility will be equipped with the tools and resources needed to conduct research in the agriculture and forestry sectors and will explore regional solutions to industry needs. The Centre’s logo includes two bee shapes in the form of a double helix representing “cross-pollinated discovery” and the intersection of research and industry, as well as six petals to represent the scientific method. “ABARC’s inception is timely as we work to maximize regional partnerships and research potential at our Beaverlodge Centre and across NWP campuses,” said Acting NWP President Dr Vanessa Sheane.
