The goal of the Food from Thought (FfT) program is to increase the sustainability and productivity of global food production by leveraging the power of leading-edge data science, agri-food research and biodiversity science. This university wide initiative is funded in part by a $76.6 million grant from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund.
FfT grants will enable researchers who are working on projects that align with this goal by providing funding and learning experiences to propel their discoveries forward. These grants will also benefit the entire agri-food industry by supporting the development of open, shared platforms and tools.
More information about the Research Innovation Immersion Placement Grants and Product Development Grants is available under the Food from Thought Grants page. If you are interested in workshops that your will expose research team/students to new skills that can help them to envision and communicate solutions and to develop fruitful, long term relationships with industry please check out our Advantage Workshops.
