National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) reports:

NCGA is pleased to announce a special session of the Corn Utilization and Technology Conference (CUTC) focused on funding for research, development, and commercialization of new uses for corn. This special session will bring together a panel of experts from both the public and private sectors to discuss funding across the RD&C spectrum from bench level to financing new capital at existing facilities. This free online event is scheduled for 10:00-11:30 Central Time on Thursday, May 13, 2021.

"One of the key aspects of CUTC is to build a community of researchers and other stakeholders who are focused on new technology. COVID limited our ability to bring this group together, so this session is a good opportunity to have an informational program that is of interest to our entire CUTC audience and keep this community engaged and cohesive," said Randy DeSutter, Chair of the Sustainable Ag Research Action Team.

Funding is an essential component of innovation at every stage, and the panelists are uniquely suited to address a broad range of funding aspects. Drs. Valerie Reed and Tim Conner will describe programs at the Department of Energy and the USDA. Mr. McAfee and Mr. May will provide insights on funding mechanisms in the private sector and how to apply them to fund business growth and other needs successfully.

"We are very excited to have panelists of such high caliber and think that our audience will be able to learn a great deal regarding funding innovative projects to extend uses for corn," said DeSutter.

NCGA would like to thank our sponsors, Fluid Quip, Indiana Corn Marketing Council, ITOCHU, Kansas Corn Commission, Minnesota Corn Growers Association and Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association whose funding has helped make this effort possible.
