Businesses and startups already active in the technology sectors of agriculture, aquaculture, and the environment are encouraged to participate in the F³ Tech initiative by submitting problems and challenge ideas that can be included in upcoming Challenge Events held at Maryland colleges and universities.  Your submissions will provide students with real-world problems that challenge their efforts in developing new innovations and technologies for commercial applications.

Your reward for a submission will be the connection with any student teams that select to work on your challenge and an abstract of their results will be provided to you.  Any data and intellectual property as a result of student efforts will remain the property of the students.  In the event you have interest in the student team’s work product, you are welcome to initiate direct negotiations with the team.
