Welcome

NC State - University of Adelaide

NC State and the University of Adelaide have established a strategic partnership to advance research collaboration and academic exchanges across areas of complementary strength and expertise.  

The joint NC State-Adelaide Food Security and Health Workshop will bring together researchers from NC State and the University of Adelaide, Australia in order to develop a partnership that builds on joint strengths in research and teaching.  A focus on food security (broadly covering aspects of access, safety, nutrition and production) within a multi-disciplinary context will include presentations, discussions and strategic planning across activities in plant breeding, plant science, food bioprocessing and nutrition, soil science, and animal/veterinary sciences.  The Workshop is also an opportunity to engage biotechnology partners in the Research Triangle Park in a way to leverage complementary expertise and synergies.
