The Dairy Innovation Hub will hold two dynamic events, Nov. 17-18, to highlight newly funded projects and share results from initial project funding.

In just two years, this unique initiative has funded more than 100 research and outreach projects across three campuses and four priority areas.

The virtual Dairy Summit on Nov. 17 will feature the Hub’s newest projects and is formatted for a general audience. The Dairy Symposium on Nov. 18 is geared toward students, faculty or anyone looking for a deeper dive into the Hub’s most advanced stage research. The Symposium is fully hybrid with in-person and virtual options. Both events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required.
