The Cornell Alliance for Science seeks to promote access to scientific innovation as a means of enhancing food security, improving environmental sustainability and raising the quality of life globally.
Supported by a $5.6 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Cornell Alliance for Science will help increase access to agricultural innovations through collaboration and innovative communications.
To meet these goals, the Alliance initially plans to focus efforts around:
Establishing a global network: Build a significant global alliance of partners who believe in the common mission of solving complex global hunger issues by leveraging advances in agriculture including the creative tools and insights biotechnology can offer.
Training with a purpose: Train partners around the world with the tools and skills needed to communicate about science and promote evidence-based decision making. Read more...
The Cornell Alliance for Science is administered by International Programs in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (IP-CALS) at Cornell University.
