Programa de Investigación e Innovación para Pequeñas Empresas
El Instituto Nacional de Alimentación y Agricultura (NIFA, por sus siglas en inglés) administra el programa SBIR del Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos (USDA), el cual se centra en proyectos que mejoran la agricultura, el cuidado del medio ambiente y las comunidades rurales.
The United States and CGIAR
The United States investment in CGIAR research is a win-win proposition for the U.S. and developing countries. This document describes the five wins from collaboration between the U.S. and CGIAR.
Global Engagement Opportunities
NIFA is committed to strengthening American agriculture through global engagement.
In 2016, the United States Department of Agriculture signed a memorandum of understanding with the Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center.
4-H Programming Partnerships
The Division of Youth and 4-H works with these partners to provide national leadership to the 4-H Program.
4-H Guiding Principles
The 4-H Guiding Principles are the foundation of positive youth development programming.
How 4-H is Implemented
4-H youth development is an integral and essential part of the total Cooperative Extension System’s educational program.
4-H offers a youth development experience for all youth ages 5-19. 4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.
NIFA FY 2017 President’s Budget Proposal
The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) catalyzes transformative discoveries, education, and engagement to address agricultural challenges. NIFA-supported programs turn research into action—bringing groundbreaking discoveries from research laboratories to farms, communities, and classrooms. To ensure science is put into use, NIFA’s integrated approach consists of three components: Research to provide answers to the complex issues facing our nation and world. Education to strengthen schools and universities to train the next generations of scientists, educators, producers, and citizens. Extension to translate the knowledge gained through research and education into innovations that can provide solutions to problems.
The First 20 Years of the 1994 Land-Grant Institutions
Twenty years ago, we reached an important milestone in our nation’s effort to achieve equity in research, education, and extension. In 1994, 29 tribal colleges received land-grant university (LGU) status, giving them access to federal government resources that would improve the lives of Native students through higher education and help propel American Indians toward self-sufficiency. These resources also support innovative research, education, and extension programs that positively impact agriculture and food production.
