Virtual Office Hours: Catalyzing Across Sectors to Advance the Bioeconomy (CASA-Bio) -- Three Dates

About the series


Recognizing that the world is on the cusp of an industrial revolution fueled by biotechnology and biomanufacturing, in September 2022, President Biden signed a Bioeconomy Executive Order (EO).  The EO laid out a vision for a government-wide research strategy to advance biotechnology and biomanufacturing through foundational and use-inspired research to drive innovations in five thematic areas: climate change, food and agriculture, supply chain resilience, human health, and the cross-cutting advances to enable progress across all these areas.

To work towards creating a unified, collaborative strategy to advance the U.S. bioeconomy, Catalyzing Across Sectors to Advance the Bioeconomy (CASA-Bio; www.casa-bio.net) was created. As a first step, representatives from government, industry, and non-profit organizations met in early December to identify R&D areas of possible synergy.

Now, we seek input from the research community!


To learn how members of the research community can participate in CASA-Bio, please plan to attend one of the following virtual office hours. The office hours will be identical but are being offered on different dates/times to accommodate diverse schedules.  Choose the day and time that works best for you. 

If you are unable to attend an office hour, more information will be available at www.casa-bio.net.
