University of Alberta and TELUS partner on a 5G ‘living lab’

The $15-million TELUS 5G Living Lab will help the U of A leverage its leading expertise and industry collaborations in agriculture and food systems to create new teaching and research opportunities.

“Having precision agriculture highlighted in the first stage of the partnership will create unique opportunities for us to generate new, innovative ideas with our partners,” said Stan Blade, dean of the Faculty of Agricultural, Life & Environmental Sciences.

“The agriculture and food sector has been a leader in developing new technologies based on effective collection and use of data for diverse applications. Our expertise across the entire agrifood value chain and extensive industry collaborations will generate many new initiatives in both teaching and research using the strengths of the TELUS 5G Living Lab.”
