2010 Ag/Biotech Industry Roundtable
A Great Success!
Ag/Biotech Industry Roundtable, held on October 22nd, 2010 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 North Carolina State University 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.
