UCalgary receives $1.2M to promote innovation in agriculture


The University of Calgary’s Simpson Centre for the Alberta Digitalization Agriculture Program has received $1.2M over three years from the Government of Alberta to promote innovation in agriculture. With this funding, the Simpson Centre will lead policy research on the challenges and opportunities associated with the digitalization of agriculture. The Simpson Centre will bring together digital experts, farmers, producers, and other key stakeholders to discuss digital technologies and develop recommendations on how they can be implemented. “We are grateful that the province has acknowledged the potential of digitalization to help make agricultural production more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable,” said UCalgary President Dr Ed McCauley.
