Our Strategic Pillars
Guided by our four strategic pillars, EMILI works with industry and academia to provide people with the connections, skills, training, and resources they need.
Innovation and research
We search out opportunities for alignment and collaboration to reduce the time it takes for knowledge mobilization between industry research and development priorities and academic research.
Intelligent technology integration
We encourage collaboration and create space for new and innovative technologies and techniques to be tested in real world conditions within a full scale commercial farm environment.
Skills, training, talent
We create opportunities for individuals from non-agriculture backgrounds to learn new skills while gaining hands-on experience and exposure to a wide variety of career opportunities in digital agriculture.
Collaborate with us
Working together, we can increase the integration of intelligent technologies, empower people with digital skills, support start-ups on the prairies, and accelerate Canada's growth as a leader in digital agriculture.
