In 2017 we brought together industry leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists and investors to discuss the research advancements being made around the world and the courageous leadership that is taking place in Indiana’s agbiosciences industry.
We thank you for joining us at the Indiana AgBiosciences Innovation Summit presented by Dow AgroSciences and Elanco Animal Health where we brought together over 320 attendees from diverse backgrounds, including the technology, life sciences, food and agriculture sectors as well as representatives from several Indiana and Illinois colleges and universities.
Save the Date! See you next year on Thursday, November 29, 2018!

In The Geography of Genius, acclaimed travel writer Eric Weiner sets out to examine the connection between our surroundings and our most innovative ideas. He explores the history of places, like Vienna of 1900, Renaissance Florence, ancient Athens, Song Dynasty Hangzhou, and Silicon Valley, to show how certain urban settings are conducive to ingenuity.
Innovation is a given in the food and agricultural industries and will be critical to solving one of the biggest challenges facing the world – food security. What is needed most, however, is courageous leadership from a diverse group of stakeholders and partners – many outside of agriculture even – to ensure a sustainable future.
Moderator: Gerry Dick – Host of Inside INdiana Business
