Technology Commercialization and Transfer

It is important that the knowledge derived from publicly funded research be transferred as quickly as possible to the producers and other members of the public who can make use of this information.

Saskatchewan Agriculture has established three programs to get new information, and especially new technology, into the hands of producers, food processors and other agri-business people.

  • Agriculture-Applied Research Management (Agri-ARM) program is a province-wide network of eight regional applied research and demonstration sites that performs a similar role as the ADOPT program but on a permanent basis. Each site is affiliated with a specific producer group that sets the research priorities for that site.
  • The Saskatchewan Agri-Value Initiative (SAVI) helps large and small Saskatchewan agri-businesses grow by assisting them with product development and marketing. As well, entrepreneurs needing business training or whose employees needing training in new technology can get some of their costs covered through SAVI.

Saskatchewan Agriculture has also set up partnerships with three non-governmental agencies to commercialize the results of publicly funded research.

  • Ag-West Bio gives entrepreneurs advice and support in commercializing their products and technologies.
  • The Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre helps small and medium-sized food processors develop and launch new products.
  • The Industry Liaison Office of the University of Saskatchewan helps commercialize the technologies developed by the government-funded Strategic Research Program chairs at the university.
