Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources 75th Anniversary Lecture Series


Project Scope:

Established by the NRC in 1944, the Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources (BANR) will use its 75th anniversary year as a platform for engagement with and outreach to the U.S. food and agricultural sciences community, positioning the work of the National Academies and the Board as an extension of the research enterprise into science policy.

The engagement mechanism will be a series of events (Lectures/Seminars) that are proposed, funded, and organized locally by colleges of agriculture and natural resources at land-grant and other institutions in coordination with and under the guidance of BANR. These events, held monthly at different locations across the U.S. during 2019-2020, will spotlight emerging scientific themes that are locally important and emblematic of the kind of issues addressed by BANR.  The activities should engage students, faculty, and the private sector; raise awareness of how the research conducted by the academic community underpins science-policy work; and provide opportunities for cultivating a greater understanding of the significance of the work of the National Academies and BANR.

Description :   

*Postponed Date TBD*

In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources

Biotechnology has the potential to address a wide range of grand challenges – from food security to climate change resilience, sustainable farming to restoration of lost species. What will the impacts of these emerging technologies actually be, which stakeholders are being considered (or ignored), and what does responsible innovation and governance look like in these disparate areas? Join us for a two-day symposium focused on these topics and more.

Description :   

The Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources has a strong legacy providing vision and focus for the future of agriculture and the balance between human activity and the Earth’s natural resources. The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Science (UF/IFAS) aligns directly with this legacy by combining all aspects of the land-grant mission (Extension, Research, and Teaching) with disciplines serving agriculture and natural resources throughout the state. UF/IFAS is at the forefront of the intersection of agriculture and natural resources challenges, given the complexity, diversity, and climatic exposure of Florida systems. This BANR celebration event has been designed to highlight challenges that Florida is facing along with potential pathways for advancing its agriculture and natural resources for sustainably increasing benefits to the state.

Description :   

The 2019 Arizona Agribusiness Roundtable will cover a wide range of issues facing the agriculture industry today. This collaborative effort by the Arizona Department of Agriculture and the Agribusiness & Water Council of Arizona offers an opportunity for you to ask questions, share your views and network with fellow ag professionals. Agribusiness is a vast support structure that forms one of the largest economic segments on this planet. It is a significant contributor to the gross domestic product of every country on this globe. It is a huge and essential industry, yet in the eyes of many it remains invisible. This meeting is for farmers, ranchers, agribusiness financiers, equipment suppliers, crop and livestock support services, energy and water providers, agricultural educators, veterinarians and other agribusinesses.
