MTRAC AgBio Innovation Challenge Opens August 1
The MTRAC AgBio Innovation Hub at MSU is pleased to announce the first-of-its-kind AgBio Innovation Challenge. The Challenge is an opportunity for innovators at Michigan’s public universities, non-profit research institutes and public hospital systems to identify AgBio applications for early-stage technologies under development in their laboratories or institutions. The objective of the challenge is to increase awareness and interest (among researchers) in the wide range of technical challenges now facing businesses and end-users operating in the agriculture, biomaterials and bioprocessing markets.
What is the Challenge? The Innovation Challenge is a pilot competition intended to identify key conceptual bridges between nascent and emerging technologies and specific, high-value applications in the AgBio market. Its purpose is to encourage awareness, innovation and investment in translational AgBio research among Michigan innovators. Those with a truly unique insight and high likelihood of developing into significant translational research and commercialization efforts in a short timeframe will generally score the highest. Of particular interest are those technology applications that can help Michigan AgBio businesses compete more successfully in national and international markets.
