25 years of trusted science analysis & advice
Driving the discovery, development, commercialization and adoption of agri‑innovations.
Since 1998, VISTA Science & Technology has been supporting Canada's agrifood research and innovation system to drive the discovery, development, commercialization and adoption of agri-innovations. We understand the challenges of putting research into action in the face of overwhelming challenges.
The promise of science
For more than 150 years, Canada's agriculture sector has embraced the promise of science to become a global leader in sustainable food production.
Unlocking the promise of science to accelerate discovery, development, commercialization and adoption of new research to drive agri-innovation is an ongoing challenge defined by complexity, uncertainty, risk and ambiguity. Understanding this complexity is key to effectively navigating and negotiating an increasingly uncertain future to realize the promise of science.

Maximizing the Benefits & Impact of Agricultural Innovation
VISTA maintains an active in-house research program. Drawing on both qualitative and quantitative social science methods, we investigate and explore the social-ecological dynamics of agricultural innovation systems. A core area of our research is the role of knowledge translation and transfer (KTT) in the discovery, development, commercialization, acceptance and adoption of agri-innovations and the implications for practice, policy and governance.
