报告人简介:

      Norman Roy Scott ,美国康奈尔大学生物与环境工程系的荣誉退休教授。康奈尔大学前副校长(1989-1998)。1990年入选美国工程院院士,2006年获聘为上海交通大学的顾问教授,2014年获聘为上海交通大学的名誉教授。

      Scott教授的研究领域是可持续性发展、可再生资源、生物衍生燃料、农业-生态-工业系统。发表百余篇学术论文、指导了45名硕士和博士研究生,并当选美国农业与生物工程师学会(ASABE),美国医学和生物工程研究学会(AIMBE),美国制热、制冷和空调工程师学会(ASHRAE),美国生物工程学会(IBE)共4个学会的fellow和会长。Scott教授1990年入选美国工程院院士,被美国工程院赞誉为:“在动物生理热调节领域做出了开创性的贡献,是农业与生物领域的工程教育和研究领域的引领人”。

      2001年,Scott教授发起了“美国大学和研究所与中国农业高校合作联盟”,吸引了13所美国赠地大学和8所中国的农业大学参与。该联盟的成立和交流为中美高校的合作尤其是农业领域和合作起到了至关重要的奠基和促进作用。

主持发起“唐氏·康奈尔·中国学者”项目;自2013年起,每年春季学期赴上海交通大学开设《生物质能工程》课程,受到了师生的好评。

 

报告摘要:

       At this pivotal time in history with an expanding global population requiring more from an increasingly fragile natural resource base, science breakthroughs are needed now more than ever. The research community bears tremendous responsibility of implementing scientific advances to support our world’s well-being and security, and perhaps even global stability. Promising research opportunities include integrating agriculture and food systems to sustainably meet human and animal health needs, provide yield stability and economic value under variable and uncertain environmental pressures, and reduce inputs and negative environmental impacts. Realizing this vision requires a holistic systems approach that combines scientific discovery, technological innovation, and incentives to revolutionize our food and agricultural systems to ensure greater food security and human and environmental health. Implementing this vision requires a bolder approach to research that integrates scientific insight from various disciplines to bring promising breakthroughs to fruition and to ensure competitiveness and food security. The food system of tomorrow will depend on how well we are able to prepare for resiliency today and how well we are able to build our capacity for the future. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) provide independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation and conduct other activities to solve complex problems and inform public policy decisions. Dr. Norm Scott, having served as Coordinator of the recently released report, Science Breakthroughs for Advancing Food and Agricultural Research by 2030, and as an NAE committee member will discuss the five science breakthroughs and the recommendations of the report.
