Cascadia Innovation Corridor Virtual Forum: Sustainable Agri-foods and Agri-tech in Cascadia

Event Description

The 2020 Cascadia Innovation Corridor Virtual Forums build upon the four years of gatherings and work to strengthen collaboration across the Cascadia mega-region. Like the conferences before, the virtual forums bring together business, academic, and government leaders from both sides of the border to explore new strategies for the region to come together, maximize our shared competitive advantages, and elevate our global economic position. It is an opportunity to engage with regional, national and international experts on how we can work together to strengthen Cascadia’s position as an international hub for innovation, spur job creation, and restore our economic health in the context of today’s challenges, particularly COVID-19.

The Cascadia Innovation Corridor Community on Friday, November 20th held their fourth virtual forum of the series: Sustainable Agri-foods and Agri-tech in Cascadia hosted by Cascadia Innovation Corridor's sustainable agriculture sub-committee Co-chairs, Dr. Rickey Yada, Dean of UBC Faculty of Land and Food Systems and Chad Krueger, Director, Western Washing College of Agricultural Human and Natural Resources Sciences.
