UFV, UoGuelph sign MOU to advance sustainable agri-food pathways

The University of the Fraser Valley and the University of Guelph have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to advance pathways for sustainable innovation within Canada’s food and agriculture industry. Under this partnership, UFV and UoGuelph will establish accelerator workshops, facilitate a national network of agricultural technology players, and nurture research and development opportunities to scale new innovations into the marketplace. “I see this MOU as a timely and exciting alignment between two vital nodes of expertise on agriculture and the future of food,” said UoGuelph interim VP (research) Rene Van Acker. “From training, to applied research, and work on policy, this is the moment to take a national approach that will position Canada to be a global agri-food powerhouse.”
