IANR's Global Vision
Agriculture & natural resources have a unique place in Nebraska and provide the foundation for a number of UNL’s international partnerships and initiatives. As a 21st century land-grant institution, Nebraska’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources aims to make an impact not only locally and nationally, but also globally. To become more strategically aligned with our core mission areas, our globally-focused staff are now embedded into the research, innovation, teaching and learning areas they directly impact. This effort is further advanced by becoming a comprehensively internationalized institution. To us, comprehensive internationalization means that:
…students are prepared to live, work, and serve in our increasingly interconnected world
…faculty are actively engaged in internationally collaborative efforts to address the grand challenges of our time
...IANR is a strong international economic development partner for the state of Nebraska and its people.

Husker research shows palm oil production can grow while protecting ecosystemsA four-year research project led by Nebraska's Patricio Grassini and supported by a $4 million grant from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs suggests that keeping up with palm oil demand may not necessarily mean converting more valuable, fragile ecosystems into agricultural land. According to research published March 25 in Nature Sustainability, palm oil yields on existing farms and plantations could be greatly increased with improved management practices. Researchers from the Indonesian Oil Palm Research Institute, the Indonesian Agency for Agriculture Research and Development, and Wageningen University in the Netherlands were also part of the project.
