Thought for food...
Our global agriculture and food systems require a radical transformation relying on expertise in multiple areas and research collaborations across disciplines that include agriculture, food safety, engineering, information and computer science, biology, business and the social sciences.
More than 100 faculty from across Cornell’s colleges – Agriculture and Life Sciences, Engineering, Computing and Information Science, Arts and Sciences, Veterinary Medicine and Business – have come together to develop a robust research agenda for CIDA, weaving unmatched excellence into holistic solutions for food and agriculture. CIDA’s mission is to inspire learning, catalyze innovation, and integrate fundamental discoveries to achieve new levels of sustainability in agri-food systems and new food for thought.
