Foreword

Dear Readers,

First of all, we would like to thank all of you who accepted to participate to our satisfaction survey. The results are encouraging, and give us a bunch of ideas to go deeper with this newsletter. New topics, focuses and interactions. You will discover that soon, keep posted.

In the meantime, to finish this year 2013, two highlights this month, with a focus on grants for greentechnologies :
-  The U.S. Departments of Agriculture (USDA) and Energy (DOE) today announced $8 million in research grants to develop non-food feedstocks that can be used for bioenergy ;
-  Iowa petroleum retailers interested in offering consumers higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel are encouraged to apply for the “Fueling our Future” pilot program to consider applying for cost share funding.

You will also be able to learn about trending research topics in agriculture, food and livestock occurred during the last month, such as listed in the table of content below.

The whole team of the Office for Science and Technology in the US wishes all of you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year !

Enjoy your reading !
