The Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture is delighted to welcome graduate research students to take part in our second virtual symposium “Global Reach 2021: Solving Agricultural Problems Through Research and Innovation”.

The symposium will take place virtually on July 21 and 22, 2021 over the Zoom video communications platform. The symposium aims to bring together 55 presenters from six international university partners from Canada, China, India and the Philippines to a knowledge sharing and networking event to explore innovative, out of the box solutions to agricultural problems.

Through this symposium, graduate students from the participating universities are awarded the opportunity and platform to participate in thematic sessions including: Animal Science and Aquaculture, Agri-Business, Crop Science, Plant production, Engineering, Education and Environmental Science. Graduate students will share how their completed and/or ongoing research can provide innovative solutions to agricultural challenges.

The symposium will feature addresses from the Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, Dalhousie President, Dalhousie VP Government and Global Relations, and a Dalhousie Research Showcase featuring Dr. Sophia He and Dr Brandon Heung.

We welcome all faculty and staff to join the symposium to view student presentations and participate in the interactive discussion sessions.
