Representatives from Limagrain and HM.Clause came to the University of Florida to engage with students about the Challenge 2050 Project and implications for the work that they will be doing. Together the students and industry professionals engaged in a Think Tank designed by Challenge 2050 faculty to identify gaps addressing the issues related to Challenge 2005. A concept map (see picture) was created from the dialogue, illustrating the complexity of the issues facing our world.
Dr. Elaine Turner, Dean of College of Agricultural and Life Sciences attended the Think Tank and noted, “It is amazing to see the synergy that is taking place in the room. Students and professionals working side by side in an effort to address the biggest problems that we face as a global community. It is inspiring.”
