R&E Exchange Grant Supports Cirone’s Research to Improve Local Food Systems

Making international comparatives between Italy and Canada – University of Bologna student, Francesco Cirone, is learning how to use GIS (graphic information systems) software to increase the efficiency of local food systems. Cirone plans to visit several local food markets throughout the Westman Region in Manitoba and working with Dion Wiseman at Brandon University, will create a map of local food supply systems with spatial analysis regarding food production, transportation and distribution.  The opportunity to conduct his research in Canada was made possible with support from the RPLC Research & Exchange Grant.
