The International Center, IFAS and EPI to host the Innovations for International Development Symposium

The International Center, IFAS International Programs, and the Emerging Pathogens Institute are pleased to be hosting the upcoming Innovations for International Development Symposium.

The event, which will take place on May 2 from 9:00am-12:00pm in the Rion Ballroom, will be an exciting opportunity for members of the UF community to exchange information and ideas about technologies and innovations that can be used to advance solutions that can improve the lives of the poor in developing countries. The three broad topics we are focusing on are: Technology; Capacity building/Implementation; and Extension/Technology Transfer. If you would like an opportunity to present your work, please submit the Call for Abstracts form by April 18 at 5pm. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed on April 19 by a committee, and you will be notified later that day of the committee’s decision. If you are selected you will be advised of the format for your presentation (either a poster or a brief oral presentation) though you are invited to state your preference on the submission form.
