The Nanoscale Science and Engineering for Agriculture and Food Systems GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.
Nano-enabled systems offer potential technologies toward improving the safety, quality, and sustainability of our agriculture and food systems. In 2024, this fourth GRC on Nanotechnology for Agriculture and Food Systems will focus on the impact of nanoscience and technology for sustainable food production. A community of scientists from around the globe, representing academia, industry, government, and NGO's will assemble to present and discuss cutting edge, unpublished research with other experts in the field. In appreciation of the multi-disciplinary nature of this growing field, the problem includes a comprehensive vision of critical and emerging research areas. This conference will encompass nanotechnology research advances across the field of agricultural & applied sciences, inclusive of food science and engineering, plants/soil, animal science, human health and disease, and address safe deployment of nanotechnology in these areas with a view to public perception and policy.
The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include 9 sessions and the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. Please check back regularly for updates to this information.
