Canadian Grain Commission’s new Science Strategy responds to the changing needs of the grain sector

The Canadian Grain Commission’s new Science Strategy is now available.

The strategy lays out a vision for the future of science and research at the Canadian Grain Commission and positions us to respond to the latest trends and developments in the grain sector.

Based on consultations with producer and industry organizations, end users, academia as well as other provincial and federal government departments, the Science Strategy identifies 5 drivers that will shape the future of grain science into the next decade:

- global trends and emerging market issues
- advances in technology
- evolving end uses
- climate change and extreme weather
- food safety and nutrition

The Science Strategy details the CGC's goals and desired outcomes for grain science in response to these drivers. It also outlines how the Canadian Grain Commission will implement these goals using an innovative approach to science, people, collaboration and infrastructure.
