Why University-Industry Collaborations In Biotechnology Matter
Where do GM crops and other agricultural innovations come from? If you answered with the name of an agricultural products company, you are only partially correct. Companies do commercialize the final product, but the inception, invention and development of a commercial product is done on a continuum that starts with years of basic research — often in a university laboratory — and ends with the commercialization of the product. This cooperative process yields benefits for universities and industry, farmers and, ultimately, for society.
