The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine study Science Breakthroughs 2030: A Strategy for Food and Agricultural Research is seeking your help in identifying ambitious scientific opportunities in food and agriculture, with special attention to those ideas empowered by insights and tools from disciplines of science and engineering not typically associated with food and agriculture.
Share your ideas on our “IdeaBuzz” challenge website—a discussion platform where you will be asked to post your perspectives and ideas for innovative scientific approaches and research concepts. The platform is simple to use and allows contributors to see and comment on all ideas contributed. Readers also can vote for the ideas they like. Everyone who contributes an idea will be acknowledged in the final study report.
Tell us your idea for innovative research that could elevate the science of food and agriculture. In describing your idea, please comment on how the science and engineering approach you describe might:
• Address a major challenge in food and agriculture
• Create a novel opportunity for advances in food and agricultural science
• Help overcome a technological barrier
• Fill a fundamental knowledge gap that currently holds back progress in the fields of food and agriculture
