Several U.S. government, university, and non-government collaborators will come together in Washington June 21-23 to provide input into the research strategy of the U.S. government's international agriculture initiative.
The Feed the Future Resarch Forum: Engaging the Research Community will take place June 21-23 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.
The Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) and the Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD), in coordination with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), are collaborating to organize this event to provide input into the research strategy of the U.S. government's international agriculture initiative. The forum will follow the 2011 Laureate Announcement Ceremony, taking place at noon on June 21 at the U.S. Department of State.
The forum is free to attend, but registration is required by June 10. Participants are also encouraged to join an e-consultation, which is already underway, to identify the key challenges and research questions that support the overall goal of Feed the Future.
