New Uses Forum: Accelerating Ag Innovation & Investment
Agricultural Utilization Research Institute CONFERENCE
Wed, April 08, 2020 — Thu, April 09, 2020
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

Due to the broad-ranging public health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, AURI and its collaborative partners are postponing this year’s New Uses Forum and Bold Open. This decision was not made lightly and was based on concerns for the health and wellness of all attendees, speakers, sponsors and staff. 


Selection of new dates is in process, with the likely timeframe of July/August 2020. Please watch for further details coming soon.


In the interim, please know that AURI and its partners sincerely appreciate your understanding. If you have further questions, please contact Nan Larson at nlarson@auri.org
