The OSU-UCD Partnership for Agricultural & Resource Policy Research (OreCal) is a collaboration between the Center for Agricultural & Environmental Policy at Oregon State University and the University of California Agricultural Issues Center. OreCal analyzes critical public policy issues concerning agriculture, food systems, natural resources, rural communities, and the environment. Principal Investigators for the partnership include members of the Departments of Agricultural and Resource Economics at both OSU and UC Davis. The partnership is one of the five agricultural and resource policy centers funded by the US Department of Agriculture.
OreCal held their first all-team meeting in Portland, Oregon in January. The majority of the researchers involved in the project were able to attend to meet with each other regarding their progress on their respective projects. Additionally, members from both the CAEP and AIC Advisory Networks were able to attend and provide valuable feedback about the future directions of the Partnership. It was an informative and productive meeting of the minds.
A big THANK YOU to all of those who were able to attend. We look forward to your continued involvement in the program.
