The Agricultural Innovation Partnership (AIP) program helps catalyze innovation, generates new ideas and supports collaborative partnerships advancing Minnesota’s value-added agriculture industry.
Deliverables from the program include applied research studies, as well as guides or tools to help Minnesota businesses use and add value to the state’s agricultural commodities.
Information generated through the AIP program is public domain and shared broadly with the intent of helping producers, entrepreneurs, businesses and agricultural processors explore opportunities and technologies in the areas of biobased products, food, renewable energy and coproducts.
Examples of past partnership projects include:
- Minnesota Cultivated Wild Rice: Protein Quality, Effect on the Gut Microbiome, and Hardening When Cooked with a Sweetener
- Food Product Shelf-Life Guide for Scaling Businesses
- Local Sourcing for Food Manufacturing in Minnesota
- E-Commerce and Digital Marketing Guide
- Minnesota Aquaculture: Opportunities and Challenges
- Minnesota Shared-Use Commercial Kitchen
