Services and Resources

The Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance is committed to supporting the success of Ontario’s agriculture, food and bio-product sectors. We fulfill this commitment by helping researchers collaborate with partners in government, academia and industry to accelerate the impact of research.

We strive to support our researchers and partners as they contribute to the health and vitality of Ontario’s rural communities and the agriculture industry as a whole.


Office of Research, Agri-Food Partnership KTT staff are available to help with the development and execution of your KTT plan. We offer one-on-one meetings to help researchers prepare KTT plans for our Tier I Research and KTT Funding Programs.

We also offer training workshops to help faculty, staff and students learn and develop KTT and communications skills. Workshops include clear language writing, scientific poster design, infographic poster design, KTT 101 and more. Our Skills for Research Impact series offers additional topics in practical, hands-on workshops.
