University of Guelph Policy Fellowship
The University of Guelph Policy Fellowship Program helps to bridge the gap between science and policy or practice. It connects decision-makers from government, industry and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with University of Guelph experts for focused conversation about issues in agriculture, food and biodiversity.
Fellows are matched with carefully selected faculty and staff who can provide insight on their key challenges. The program allows decision-makers to access cutting-edge research for informed policy decisions, to discuss complex challenges with peers and leading researchers, and to build networks of experts to advise on emerging needs.
The program takes place three times a year, either fully virtually or in a hybrid format at the University of Guelph. Upcoming cohort themes include:
- Circular Food Economy – Summer 2022
- Environmental Sustainability in Agriculture – Fall 2022
- Digital Agriculture – Winter 2023
- Food Security – Summer 2023
