FSAA: A leader in agri-food research
FSAA represented in 4 types of chairs
As research programs aimed at rewarding and recognizing excellence, chairs help researchers to excel in their field. The Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences is proud to be represented by its researchers in 4 types of chairs.
Chairs are made possible thanks to the financial participation of the federal government, the provincial government, associations, federations and a range of private partners who believe in research and its benefits for the community.
