You are invited to a reception in celebration of the“Agriculture, Food, Nutrition, and Natural Resources Round Table: Showcasing Exemplary R&D Collaborations.”
The achievements originating from agriculture, food, and natural resources related R&D are products of partnerships that occur throughout the federal government and with the private sector. These productive collaborations are essential to overcome 21st Century Challenges, i.e. food security, food safety, nutrition and health, bioenergy, and climate change. They maintain the competitiveness of our nation’s agricultural products. At the reception, we will celebrate the networks which have made the partnerships successful.
