Intelligent technology

Our strategic pillar: Intelligent technology integration

Intelligent technology integration is one of EMILI's strategic pillars. We work to build the capacity of Canadian agriculture, encouraging collaboration, and creating space for new and innovative technologies and techniques to be tested in real world conditions within a full, scale commercial farm environment. See our Data Initiative and Innovation Farms for examples of this).

Our other pillars are innovation and research; skills, training, and talent development; and capital enablement.

Guided by these strategic pillars EMILI works with industry and academia to provide people with the connections, skills, training, and resources they need.
