CASA-Bio: Call to all Bioeconomy Researchers and Developers

Calling all Bioeconomy Researchers and Developers,

If you think your research is not relevant to the bioeconomy – think again! We are seeking input from researchers interested in climate change, food and agriculture, supply chain resilience, human health, or any number of cross-cutting advances like data science; artificial intelligence; workforce development; biomanufacturing scale-up; or multiple areas of social, behavioral, and economic sciences; and security. Your ideas will impact future directions for the bioeconomy. Please check out to learn how you can participate through interactive Town Halls, sharing individual research ideas, and more.

In a nutshell, CASA-Bio (Catalyzing Across Sectors to Advance the Bioeconomy) was designed to be a collaborative, facilitated activity with stakeholders that include federal funding agencies, industries, non-profits, and the public sector research community. Come help us define the R&D approaches that will advance the future of the bioeconomy.
