Ag/Biotech Industry Roundtable: A Great Success

AgBio Industry Roundtable, held on October 22nd at The North Carolina Biotechnology Center (NCBC), was a huge success, drawing more than 120 participants, including 50 researchers and 30 business managers. Eight cutting edge technologies in the plant science field were presented by NCSU and Nagoya University faculties, in addition to four industry presentations by Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, and BASF. All presentations were followed by questions from an actively engaged audience. The NCBC was crowded with participants networking and socializing with others from early in the morning until after lunchtime, including meetings between faculty presenters and industries interested in possible collaboration. NU Tech will plan to host another Roundtable in the lifescience sector next spring.
