Who should be attending?
Individuals involved in or affected by agricultural research and research dissemination, federal and provincial governments, private groups involved in research or agricultural advocacy, academia, and industry organizations.

In July 2015, agricultural stakeholders gathered in Ottawa to help develop a national agricultural research policy for the 21st century (read our conference report here).  Broad consensus among participants identified building strong networks for research dissemination as a key area in the national policy released September 2015.
AIC 2016 will now tackle the next biggest challenges in agricultural research policy – how to bring research results to those who need it the most – producers, farmers, industry and consumers – and how to maximize the adoption of new technologies and innovations.
Join us in Ottawa to help further develop this area of the national policy!  AIC 2016 promises to engage participants and stimulate lively debate on topics ranging from intellectual property protection, to modern research extension strategies, and maximizing technology transfer to industry stakeholders.
