UIDP Webinar Recording: Innovation in the Bioeconomy | Feeding the Planet Sustainably

In the coming decades, agriculture will need major advances to meet the food, feed, fiber, and fuel demands of the growing population while reducing its environmental footprint. Within this context, there is an urgent and critical need to establish an agricultural bioeconomy that is sustainable, productive, and resilient to change.

UIDP convened more than 100 participants from academic, industry (large and small), government, and nonprofit sectors to define the needs for new agriculture, identify gaps to progress, and articulate near- and long-term goals to achieve successful outcomes. This webinar discusses the key findings and presents recommendations and next steps from the workshop report.
