Join us for the Fourth Annual Food Security Symposium Food Security in the 21st Century: Envisioning R&D Strategies for Meeting the Demand

The Fourth Annual International Food Security Symposium will bring together some of the world’s leading agricultural researchers to share their visions for addressing food security in the 21st century. This year's symposium themes will focus on: 1) mining germplasm banks efficiently and effectively, 2) addressing abiotic and biotic stresses in the context of climate changeand, and 3) improving photosynthesis. An overarching theme of the symposium will be how to 'train the next generation of scientists’. Through this symposium, we seek to foster the development of existing and new collaborations towards solving critical challenges of agricultural production to ensure future food security.
