Science Breakthroughs 2030

Welcome to the website of The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine study, Science Breakthroughs 2030: A Strategy for Food and Agricultural Research, that will identify ambitious scientific opportunities in food and agriculture made possible by incorporating knowledge and tools from across the science and engineering spectrum. The year-long project will involve the scientific community in describing research directions with high potential to open new frontiers for food and agriculture science.

The goal is to develop a compelling scientific strategy for food and agricultural research for the next decade and beyond that would stimulate transformational change in the food and agricultural system by catalyzing new research directions and partnerships, attracting new research talent, stimulating entrepreneurial activities, increasing funding opportunities, and ultimately opening new paths to a safe, healthful, and sustainable supply of food and fiber.

Major funding for the study has been provided by the Supporters of Agricultural Research (SoAR) Foundation, the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR), the United States Department of Agriculture – National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). View additional support here.
