Innovations at the Nexus of Food / Energy / Water Systems (INFEWS)

In mid-November 2015, Kansas State University hosted an NSF-Funded workshop to explore the research advances that would be required to realize advances in the Food / Energy / Water Systems.  The workshop was attended by approximately 60 individuals including individuals from academia, government laboratories, private industry, private, non-profit foundations, governmental regulators, and private citizens.  Workshop activities were supported by a group of Ph.D. students studying towards degrees in agronomy, economics, sociology, and engineering. 

The final workshop report can be found here.
