Our Global Food Future: Capitalizing on Collaborative Investment and Shared Innovations

Wednesday, December 2nd from 3:00-4:30pm ET

The APLU International Agriculture Section invites the North American agricultural research, extension, and development community to participate in an online dialogue to set the stage for the next generation of global agriculture innovation and collaboration. We have invited the following speakers to share their vision for the future of global connectivity, technology, sciecne, and institutional partnerships.

  • Dr. Livia Bizikova, Lead, Monitoring and Governance, Tracking Progress, IISD, Canada
  • Dr. Robert Bertram, USAID Chief Scientist
  • Dr. Guillermo Hernandez, Mexico
  • Dr. Sara Farley, the Global Food Initiative, The Rockefeller Foundation

Today’s innovation occurs, not only in-person, but also over the phone, computer, and other connected devices. Research collaboration requires monitoring and evaluation technologies that are advanced and connected to keep pace with international research competition. Funders at the private, foundation, and multi-national level seek modern approaches to innovation, institutional models, and work that is grounded in cultural and knowledge exchange. After we hear from the speakers, participants will be invited to participate in an online dialogue around what North American Institutions can do to effectively plan to adapt to new methods of undertaking collaborations and engage in research, teaching, and extension.
