Call for Letters of Intent


CPRC made changes for the 2016 call and will maintain these changes for the 2019 call.  The research categories previously used were unable to accommodate some new initiatives in poultry research (i.e.: climate change, smart agriculture, precision agriculture).  The CPRC Board of Directors decided that the ad hoc category that was originally designed to fill these gaps was not as effective as it has been in the past.  The Board established a three-category approach for the call designed to accommodate both ongoing research issues and respond to evolving areas of research.  Specific priority areas and desired research outcomes, most included in the 2012 National Research Strategy for Canada’s Poultry Sector, have been identified within the categories.  The 2019 call for LOIs encompasses the three categories and their priorities that are identified below.
