NIFA Plant and Pest Biology Stakeholders' Workshop
NIFA held its second Stakeholders' Workshop on Plant and Pest Biology Research, Education, and Extension Priorities November 16, 2005. It brought together representatives from scientific societies, commodity groups, and other organizations who presented their priorities in research, education, and extension in the context of NIFA’strategic goals. The workshop also provided an opportunity for communication between NIFA and the stakeholders to ensure relevant issues were being addressed, as well as to explore new areas for consideration. In turn, the workshop informed stakeholders of current NIFA and interagency programs. Federal program managers from NIFA, USDA Agricultural Research Service, the Department of Energy, and the National Science Foundation attended and participated in a question and answer session on Federal activities in plant and pest biology.
