Inputs: The Podcast
Evolving innovation with Living Lab-Ontario

February 7, 2023
By Top Crop Manager


The Living Laboratories initiative, introduced by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in 2018 and implemented in several provincially organized labs in the intervening years, has been reframing the relationship between research and innovation. A collaborative effort between producers, industry groups and researchers, Living Labs projects examine practices in the field and emphasize evolution over replicability.

Tracey Ryan, applied research co-ordinator with the Ontario Soil and Crops Improvement Association (OSCIA) and co-lead of Living Lab-Ontario, discusses the six current projects taking place in Ontario, the learning curve involved in getting the moving pieces to work together, and the future of Living Lab-Ontario.
