Ontario Pork has announced a call for Letters of Intent (LOI) for research projects that focus on the Ontario swine industry and meet the overarching research objectives of:
- Testing potential improvements to swine industry practices.
- Assessing greenhouse gas emissions from swine barns.
All research projects that align with these objectives will be considered, including, but not limited to, swine health, swine welfare, swine nutrition, swine husbandry, swine reproduction, barn design and management, employee health and safety, meat quality and safety, marketing and consumer trends and environmental and economic sustainability. Highest priority is given to projects that demonstrate scientific merit as well as strong identification of the benefit of project results to Ontario pork producers and an indication of input or support of a project from swine industry members outside of academia.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Applicant to submit LOI through the LRIC application system.
The LOI results will be communicated by the week of December 12, 2022. Qualified applicants will be invited to submit a full application. Please inform email@example.com if you are invited to submit a full application.
If invited, applicant to submit full proposal through the LRIC application system.
