Connected County

Ag 4.0.1

Grey County is excited to continue the conversation we started in 2016 about the rural renaissance at the intersection of agriculture and technology. The second installment of Ag 4.0 was held on Friday, November 24, 2017 at Meaford Hall. This summit shone a light on global challenges and local opportunities and we celebrated successes, acknowledged problems to be solved and inspired creative engagement between ag and tech.

Keynote speakers included:

Tyler Whale, Executive Director, Ontario Agri-Food Technologies 

Sarah Rotz, Post Doctoral Fellow, University of Guelph "Feeding 9 Billion" team

Karen Hand, Bio-statistician, Ontario Precision Agri-Food

Gregor MacLean, Research Project Manager, Niagara College

Deb Campbell, Agronomist, Agronomy Advantage

Ag 4.0 was one of the key initiatives to help Grey County be recognized as one of the Top7 Intelligent Communities of 2017 by the Intelligent Communities Forum. Join us at Ag 4.0 this fall to learn why.

 

Grey County is a smart and connected community...

Our lives are powered by the internet. We rely on getting and staying connected for everything from growing our businesses to watching the latest TV shows, from completing post-secondary degrees to communicating with health specialists across the globe. Connectivity is so essential that the United Nations has declared internet access to be a human right. But fibre-optic networks will just be "glass in the ground" if we don't work as a community to make sure we have the knowledge and skills required to take advantage of the opportunities created by connectivity. That's why we're working to make Grey County a “Connected County."

Explore this page to learn more what makes an intelligent community.  Read about key projects happening throughout our region and stay up to date on the latest news and events through the blog. If you want to work with us to create connections and promote sustainable prosperity in Grey County, get in touch. We want to hear from you.
