Farmers Accelerating Research in Materials Science (FARMS) Conference

By Kim Felix,

FARMS is a collaborative "day in the life" workshop that uncovers the details of every challenge - large and small - that farmers and ranchers face from sunup to sundown. Through this exchange, scientists gain valuable agribusiness insights that can be solved through advances in plastics and polymers. FARMS is led by the Kansas Polymer Research Center at Pittsburg State University and the Macromolecules Innovation Institute at Virginia Tech, and sessions are facilitated by county extension agents. The agenda includes an evening reception with a keynote speaker, a full day of workshops, and a day of proposal writing and planning. The dates are February 26-28, 2020 and it will be held in Pittsburg, KS.

Expected outcomes

Short-term projects with immediate impact

Long-term research opportunities

Development of value-added, locally-sourced products that enhance agribusiness performance

Economic diversity through new startups close to the region's renewable feedstocks with a ready workforce from PSU
