Innovation in Action

Save the Dates! Monday-Thursday, April 9-12, 2018
Doubletree Ontario, California

Message From the Vice President

UC ANR exists to help the citizens of California adapt and thrive in an ever-changing world.  Innovation in agriculture, natural resources, youth development, nutrition, education and more is the very essence of our approach to helping California and Californians prosper.  It’s why we called out Innovation as a core value, to “…anticipate and employ ingenuity to solve problems and critically evaluate options to improve outcomes and processes.”  The goal of the 2018 UC ANR Statewide Conference is to highlight and share the innovative work taking place every day throughout UC ANR and stimulate new ideas that will enhance the ability of everyone in the UC ANR system to better serve our mission.

See and hear what your colleagues (staff and academics) across UC ANR are doing and share your own work during this multi-day event. Discover what's new in Extension and Agriculture Experiment Station research. Engage with leaders of the University of California and interact with invited leaders of peer organizations across the state. Network with colleagues and cultivate new partnerships and new ideas. Opportunities abound. Please mark your calendars and come explore innovation in action!
