Silos of Excellence: Overcoming Divisions in the Sector

The Agri-food Innovation Council (AIC) invites you to join them for the sixth webinar in a series dedicated to the future of agri-food research and innovation.

Canada’s agri-food sector includes a plethora of organizations devoted, in part or entirely, to advancing certain aspects of research and innovation. On the one hand, the presence of many voices is understandable: Canada is a highly regionalized country, with each province focusing on different agri-food priorities and objectives; moreover, the sector is composed of several industries and commodity groups whose needs require unique solutions. On the other hand, it increases the risk of a siloed approach to advocacy in research and innovation when a unified effort is desirable to address issues that affect large segments of the sector.

Join AIC on September 23, 2021, from 10:00 - 11:30 am PT, as risk areas in the current landscape, and identify ways to consolidate and complement existing efforts in a way that contributes to advancing agri-food research and innovation across the sector are discussed.

Panellists:

  • Robert Friesen, former President of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture
  • The Honourable Andy Mitchell, P.C. former Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
