New Alberta Innovates Funding Available to Advance Tech Projects in Smart Agriculture and Food

Alberta Innovates is pleased to announce a new round of funding is now available under the Smart Agriculture and Food Digitalization and Automation Challenge (SAFDAC). This unique program supports projects that develop or advance smart technologies to increase productivity, reduce production costs or increase the value of Alberta’s agri-food commodities. Qualifying projects will provide solutions to challenges faced by the province’s agri-food sector and that clearly demonstrate social, economic and environmental benefits to Alberta.
