Subject: NAE FOCUS Event- Complex Food and Agricultural Systems: Engineering for Sustainability and Resilience

Dear AgMIP contributors,

The US National Academy of Engineering (NAE), with help from me, Bruno Basso, and a few other colleagues, has organized its very first (VIRTUAL) event focusing on Food and Agricultural Systems, to be held from 1100-1600 ET Thursday, September 9, 2021.

I invite you to register (free) if you are interested in circular economies for food and agriculture.

Louise Fresco (WUR), Bruno Basso, and I are on the program.

The NAE has an agenda on their web site (Agenda Web Link<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nae.edu%2F259684%2FAgenda&data=04%7C01%7Cwilliam.l.teng%40nasa.gov%7C344780775e2644526b0e08d9640a54f7%7C7005d45845be48ae8140d43da96dd17b%7C0%7C0%7C637650817808273945%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=iaGaPQ%2FHL68XzZxMcy412KY9ZMyC5PcJS70PZp2kNWM%3D&reserved=0>).

---------------     Message invitation from the NAE   --------------------

On behalf of the National Academy of Engineering’s Forum on Complex Unifiable Systems (FOCUS) program, I’m pleased to invite you to attend the NAE FOCUS Complex Food and Agricultural Systems: Engineering for Sustainability and Resilience, a virtual forum, on Thursday, September 9, 2021, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm Eastern USA time zone.

The world’s food and agricultural systems are truly impressive. The complex networks from production to consumers use advanced technologies to supply safe and affordable food. Now it must prepare for a changing climate and other challenges to sustainably meet future needs of growing populations with limited natural resources.

This forum will review characteristics and challenges of existing systems and the need for various engineering disciplines to converge to lead the transformation of current mostly linear food and agriculture into circular and resilient systems. The forum will also explore needed progress and investment in education, R&D, modeling and analytics, public-private collaboration, and other dimensions. Specific goals are to:

  1.  Inspire diverse engineering disciplines to converge and lead the needed transformations of food and agricultural systems
  2.  Explore ways to analyze trade-offs for the transformed systems and develop standards
  3.  Identify needed investments for transitioning from linear to unified circular food and agricultural systems

An agenda and registration link for the event are available here<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Furldefense.proofpoint.com%2Fv2%2Furl%3Fu%3Dhttps-3A__www.nae.edu_259414_Forum-2Don-2DComplex-2DUnifiable-2DSystems-2DFOCUSs-2DVirtual-2DForum-2Don-2DComplex-2DFood-2Dand-2DAgricultural-2DSystems-2DEngineering-2Dfor-2DSustainability-2Dand-2DResilience%26d%3DDwMFAg%26c%3DsJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg%26r%3DZi2D5MC0tLrgDfLGgxBhZw%26m%3D4hU_buvehBDC2QGQUQqn5X8slORMnPRvmt2zMbdursg%26s%3Dz036cw6y5S62GySMm3ePXoZTWn-rbobtVUICofLjD_c%26e%3D&data=04%7C01%7Cwilliam.l.teng%40nasa.gov%7C344780775e2644526b0e08d9640a54f7%7C7005d45845be48ae8140d43da96dd17b%7C0%7C0%7C637650817808283901%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=dC3Q0eRjaiR6VZ9DLunIP9a3wXPUWBqcBVBfC56vFG4%3D&reserved=0>.
