Transforming Knowledge into Food in a Worldwide Context

Overview
Transforming Knowledge into Food in a Worldwide Context Twenty-two biological and social scientists from academic, research, governmental, and international institutions gathered for a symposium to discuss how the academic community might help mitigate the ravages of hunger and malnutrition worldwide. The major focus was on improving the quality, direction, and organization of research designed to alleviate the world food problem. Ways of improving agricultural education in developing countries, adapting technology to local conditions, and identifying areas of research most likely to increase food production were explored. Scholars attempted to identify the limits of existing knowledge and explore the most promising sources of new knowledge.
