Step 1. What this program offers

Important notice

Project Summaries are accepted on a continuous basis until program funds have been allocated, or until otherwise posted on this website.

The AgriScience Program is a program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

The program aims to accelerate the pace of innovation by providing funding and support for pre-commercial science activities and cutting-edge research that benefits the agriculture and agri-food sector and Canadians.

There are two components:

  1. AgriScience Clusters (Clusters): Proposals are intended to mobilize industry, government and academia through partnerships, and address priority themes and horizontal issues that are national in scope. Applications for Clusters closed as of February 1, 2018.
  2. AgriScience Projects (Projects): This component aims to support specific shorter-term research activities to help industry overcome challenges and address fiscal barriers experienced by small and emerging sectors. They also seek to mitigate high risk opportunities that have the potential to yield significant returns. Applications are now being accepted for Projects.

If approved, support is available in the form of non-repayable contributions and/or collaborative support from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada research scientists.

The program ends March 31, 2023, or until funding has been fully committed.
