Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic met with Ohio State and CFAES officials as part of her visit to Columbus on Jan. 28. Cathann A. Kress, vice president for agricultural administration and CFAES dean, talked to Brnabic about food sciences at Ohio State and the university’s modern approaches to agricultural production; gave details on CFAES programs including biosystems and precision agriculture; and helped lead a tour of labs in the Parker Food Science and Technology Building. Brnabic has an interest in food production and food science, especially as related to fruits, jams, and jellies. Ohio State’s Office of Government Affairs organized the visit, which also included faculty and administrators from the Office of International Affairs.
“A good visit to @OhioState, one of the leading US state universities,” Brnabic said on her Twitter feed. “We talked about improving cooperation in the areas of education and science, with a special focus on innovations in agriculture. The exchange of academic staff has been discussed.”
