Fred Gould – Introducing AgBioFEWS
October 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
AgBioFEWS research training grant discussion
Fred Gould, GES Center Co-director and University Distinguished Professor, Entomology, NC State
The GES Center has received a National Science Foundation funded research training grant to launch AgBioFEWS, or Agricultural Biotechnology in our Evolving Food, Energy, and Water Systems.
This program offers 2 years of fellowship funding and professional development opportunities for students to conduct interdisciplinary science examining any aspect of how existing and future agricultural biotechnologies may interact with food, energy and water systems, at local, regional, and global scales. Fred will be discussing the program activities, goals, and rollout plan.
Note: This colloquium will not be live-streamed, although we will be filming to include footage in the program’s recruitment video. We kindly ask that attendees this week avoid wearing clothing with large logos or potentially distracting graphics. Thank you!
