New agreement enhances agricultural research at Lethbridge

October 19, 2020

Lethbridge College has announced an agreement with the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The agreement will see Lethbridge manage and operate the Alberta Irrigation Technology Centre and the Brooks Greenhouse as part of its Centre for Applied Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The facilities will be used as workspace for agricultural researchers from across the industry. “This agreement will allow our Centre for Applied Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship to build on its strengths and expand its work and relationships with the local agriculture industry, creating new and innovative solutions that drive the industry forward and contribute to Alberta’s economic growth,” said Lethbridge College President Paula Burns. Burns added the agreement is especially important for growing student capacity for research at the college. Lethbridge | Lethbridge Herald (AB)
