The Smart Agri-Food Supercluster—a 53-member stakeholder consortium that includes stakeholders from academia, industry, government, and growers—has been shortlisted for some of the $950M in funding made available through a new federal program. Postsecondary institutions such as Olds College, the University of Calgary, and the University of Lethbridge are members of the supercluster, and Red Deer News Now reports that the supercluster secretariat will be housed at Olds. “We are honoured and very excited to be selected to submit full application,”  said Olds President Stuart Cullum. “Our goal is to accelerate agri-food innovation efforts through a unique collaboration framework.” Mountain View Gazette | Red Deer News Now
