As a Canadian organization committed to higher education as well as advancing agriculture and food production worldwide, Ecoation is proud to announce it has signed a partnership agreement with one of Mexico's most prominent and well-respected agricultural universities, Ceickor Centro University, located in Mexico's agricultural heartland, Queretaro.
Ceickor Centro University offers high-level educational programs to students who want to work in high-tech protected agricultural and CEA positions in the areas of technician and engineering. These highly skilled and trained students are then quickly employed after graduation by one of the many high-tech greenhouse companies in Mexico, where they put their highly sought-after skills to work.
"I am proud to announce this significant moment and this partnership with this future-forward institution in Mexico, says Dr. Saber Miresmailli, CEO and Co-Founder of Ecoation. "Ecoation and Ceickor Centro University are joining forces to support the next generation of farmers."
The partnership between Ecoation and Ceickor will ensure students can access the latest in high-tech agricultural technology, including the use of AI and data science, and also includes opportunities for Ecoation team members to teach Ceickor students in the future. In addition, Ecoation is also providing a student scholarship, so one young person can be educated in the latest technologies that will drive the future of agriculture and become a valuable member of Mexico's growing high-tech agricultural industry.
Félix Tarrats Zirión, General Director of Ceickor Centro University, says: "We're fully convinced that AI and actionable data are the future of protected agriculture and are well aware of Ecoation's work and results with many growers around the world, so we couldn't be happier to have them as a partner at Ceickor. Together we will continue educating the future generation of growers and hopefully keep making our food a little better."
"Ecoation is a company committed to the future of farming, and that only happens if we bet on our children," says Maurcio Manotas, Ecoation's Chief Revenue Officer. "We couldn't be happier about becoming the newest partner of Ceickor Centro Universitario and being able to teach students and industry partners the real value of AI and data on greenhouses."
