Over the years, NCFAR has hosted tens of thousands of attendees at hundreds of seminars and webinars. We welcome your assistance in keeping that legacy alive by identifying speakers that will educate and empower staff on Capitol Hill and policy stakeholders about the value of public investment in food and agricultural research.
In 2024, we seek topics and speakers representing research institutions, nonprofits, or the private sector who are showcasing the value of public investment in food and agricultural research in one of four regions: the northeast, midwest, southeast, and west. This regional approach will provide a new way for attendees to connect with research that is relevant and local to them.
Submissions are due by January 15, 2024. Selections that reflect the diversity and value of federal funding for food and agriculture REE will be made by the NCFAR Research Outreach Committee (ROC) in February 2024 and in-person seminars will be scheduled between June - November 2024. Visit the NCFAR website to review the archive of past events.
