Overview: “University Industry Relationships” We often celebrate the inventors and creators who drive the world forward with astonishing scientific breakthroughs. Research giant Norman Borlaug have accomplished so much that he almost embody scientific progress itself.

What may surprise us is the public-private partnerships that play an important role in food production and related research in this country. This discussion will provide more background and information on these partnerships and the importance of them. This kind of partnership is not steered by any one entity. It’s an alignment of interests, a coalition driven by the common goal of translating research breakthroughs.
