Strategic Research Program

The Ministry has committed to provide funding for the salaries and benefits of the SRP chairs for a five-year period. This commitment assures stable funding to facilitate the recruitment and retention of the best research personnel. The chairs are responsible for attracting project funding from programs offered by public and private sectors to support their respective research program.

To provide focus, the Ministry has developed a program framework for each chair to define the area of research and key deliverables. Based on the program framework, the Ministry and each chair created a five-year research plan. The five-year research plan is used to identify and highlight research activities that will be undertaken in each year of the contract. Each chair provides an annual report for review by a program management team with representation from the Ministry and the research institution where the position is housed.

The SRP was introduced in 1986 through a series of five-year agreements.

The program focuses on four theme areas:        

  • Crop Genetic Improvement
  • Livestock Development
  • Food and Bioproducts Development      
  • Soils and Environment
