This year’s summit will be the first to include a government networking event where innovators, entrepreneurs and investors will be able to visit informally with program specialists from a number of state and federal agencies.
Agriculture, technology and industry interests will converge during the 2015 Bioindustry Summit on May 28 in the Memorial Union on the North Dakota State University campus.
The summit will explore changing market, technological and political conditions and their impacts on the region’s bioeconomy.
“With volatile energy and agricultural commodity prices, interest in value-added opportunities is growing,” says David Ripplinger, NDSU assistant professor and bioenergy specialist. “The summit is a premier venue for farmers, innovators, entrepreneurs, academics and government to meet.”
The summit is sponsored by NDSU, NDSU Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, the Bio Science Association of North Dakota, North Dakota Farmers Union, North Dakota Corn Utilization Council, North Dakota Soybean Council and North Dakota Alliance for Renewable Energy.
