Accelerating Sustainable Systems for Food Security in Extreme Environments and Food Deserts

THE CONVERGENCE OF FOOD, ENERGY, WATER AND SYSTEMS FOR SOCIETAL IMPACT

MAY 19-21, 2021

ACCELERATING INNOVATION

National-scale societal challenges cannot be solved in a single discipline.

This National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop aims to accelerate convergence to merge ideas, approaches, and technologies from a wide range of diverse sectors, disciplines, and experts. The workshop will involve diverse stakeholders, including academia, government, industry, non-profits, community-based organization, and farmers.

 

The success of this Convergence Accelerator workshop will inform future investments from the National Science Foundation for food system research and innovation at the intersection of food, energy and water.
