The North Carolina Biotechnology Center is partnering with the College of Ag and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University to host the North Carolina Agriculture & Biotechnology Summit 2014, a joining for NCBiotech's NC Ag Biotech Summit and NCSU's Stewards of the Future. This biannual event is a convening of statewide leaders and stakeholders who are making a commitment to ensure shared thinking, coordinated activities and goals to continue growing the agriculture industry in North Carolina through biotechnology. This joint event will discuss key topics such as ag biotech products, regulation, technology advances, policy, public acceptance, and academic / industry research efforts.

Attendees will learn about the diversity of resources across the state and how those resources can be leveraged to grow the state’s agriculture and biotechnology economies, while providing a safe and abundant food supply and other renewable compounds.

The Summit aims to create a greater understanding of current ag biotech innovations and issues driving future research and commercialization in North Carolina, disseminate fact-based information to the public and media to help dispel myths and misconceptions about GMOs and other ag biotech technologies, and to further validate North Carolina’s global leadership in agricultural biotechnology.
