Special Initiatives

Call status: CLOSED

Special Initiatives are part of the Ontario Agri-food Innovation Alliance Research Program and address specific research priorities set by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. These science and research needs are important for the Ministry and its stakeholders but, for various reasons, do not fit well in the annual Tier 1 call.

A fall 2022 call (now closed) has a goal of supporting one or more large, collaborative project(s) that will bring a One Health approach to explore climate change impacts, opportunities and solutions related to human, animal, plant and environmental systems.

Future Special Initiatives calls will be advertised through a U of G Research Alert and details will be available on this web page.
