Iowa State University (1)
  • Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm (now
    Iowa State University) was officially established
    on March 22, 1858, by the legislature of the
    State of Iowa.  Story County was selected as a
    site on June 21, 1859, and the original farm of
    648 acres was purchased for a cost of 5,379. 
  • The Farm House, the first building on the Iowa
    State campus, was completed in 1861, and in 1862,
    the Iowa legislature voted to accept the
    provision of the Morrill Act, which was awarded
    to the agricultural college in 1864. 
  • Iowa Agricultural College (Iowa State College of
    Agricultural and Mechanic Arts as of 1898), as a
    land grant institution, focused on the ideals
    that higher education should be accessible to all
    and that the university should teach liberal and
    practical subjects. These ideals are integral to
    the land-grant university.

Iowa State University (2)
  • The first official class entered at Ames in 1869,
    and the first class (24 men and 2 women)
    graduated in 1872.  Iowa State was and is a
    leader in agriculture, engineering, extension,
    home economics, and created the nation's first
    state veterinary medicine school in 1879. 
  • In 1959, the college was officially renamed Iowa
    State University of Science and Technology.  The
    focus on technology has led directly to many
    research patents and inventions including the
    first binary computer (the ABC), Maytag blue
    cheese, the round hay baler, and many more.
  • Beginning with a small number of students and Old
    Main, Iowa State University now has approximately
    27,000 students and over 100 buildings with world
    class programs in agriculture, technology,
    science, and art.

Bioeconomy Institute (1) 
  • The Bioeconomy Institute (BEI) is an outgrowth of
    the Bioeconomy Initiative -- a campus-wide
    effort, launched in 2002, to investigate the use
    of biorenewable resources as sustainable
    feedstocks for producing chemicals, fuels,
    materials, and energy.
  • BEI has over 140 faculty affiliated members who
    contribute to the Bioeconomy Initiative with over
    37 million in cumulative sponsored research
    funding from industry and federal agencies
    ranging from the Department of Agriculture to the
    National Science Foundation.

23
Bioeconomy Institute (2) 
  • Those involved in the Bioeconomy Initiative
    realize that in the process of moving beyond our
    current dependence on petroleum, the bioeconomy
    is nothing less than a revolution in the way
    society will supply itself with essential sources
    of carbon and energy
  • . The bioeconomy will require tight linkages
    between plant breeding, soil fertility,
    sustainable crop production, biomass
    transportation and logistics, rural communities,
    bioprocessing, distribution, and marketing
    services.

24
Bioeconomy Institute (3) 
  • Iowa State's faculty has been engaged for many
    years in both fundamental and applied research
    projects related to biorenewable resources and
    biobased products.
  • What distinguishes ISU is its early recognition
    that single objective, single investigator
    approaches to problems in this field have stymied
    progress toward commercialization of biobased
    technologies..

http//www.biorenew.iastate.edu/who-we-are.html
25
Bioeconomy Institute (4) 
  • The BEI was established to provide cohesion among
    the diverse efforts in biorenewable resources on
    campus and to encourage collaboration among
    departments, colleges, and research units. To
    date, the BEI has engaged 15 departments in five
    colleges and 13 research centers.

Biorenewables Research Laboratory
41
Biorenewables Research Laboratory (1)
  • The Iowa Board of Regents approved the 32
    million budget and conceptual design for a new
    biorenewables research laboratory at Iowa State
    University during its meeting Thursday in Ames.
  • It is the final approval ISU needed before it
    could proceed with construction on the project.
    If everything stays on schedule, ISU expects to
    bid the project in September 2008 and have the
    building open for operation by January 2010.
  • The laboratory is the first piece of a new
    biorenewables complex planned for the west side
    of campus. When the money becomes available, ISU
    plans to add on two wings to the laboratory to
    house its Department of Agricultural and
    Biosystems Engineering. snip

42
Biorenewables Research Laboratory (2)
  • The price tag for the entire project, including
    the parking ramp and the 32 million laboratory,
    is estimated around 120.5 million.
  • The new complex is expected to help ISU attract
    both researchers and contracts to campus in the
    field of biorenewables.
  • "Biorenewables research is, of course, the
    future of Iowa State,
  • Executive Vice President and Provost Betsy
    Hoffman told the regents during Thursday's
    meeting.
  • Later in the day, the regents approved one of the
    several new institutes that will be housed in the
    complex. The Center for Carbon Capturing Crops
    will continue ongoing research at the university
    to develop crops capable of sequestering
    atmospheric carbon.
  • "We really want to be the center of the future of
    the solution to the world's climate change
    problem," Hoffman said.

    CLAYWORTH REGISTER STAFF WRITERAmes, Ia. -
    It's official Iowa will pump 100 million into
    boosting its renewable fuel research and
    production. Gov. Chet Culver signed legislation
    Wednesday that will allocate the money to promote
    such things as wind power and ethanol-like
    improvements over the next four years. Culver
    called the bill historic legislation, telling a
    crowd of about 50 people at Iowa State University
    "Our 21st century Iowa expedition starts now."
    Said Culver, "This will begin the process of
    making our entire state a laboratory so that we
    remain a cutting edge of all forms of renewable
    energy."

Web 2.0 Participatory Web
  • Web 2.0, refers to a perceived second generation
    of Web-based communities and hosted services
    such as blogging, social-networking sites,
    wikis and folksonomies which aim to
    facilitate collaboration and sharing
    between users.
  • The term became popular following the first
    O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004.
    Although the term suggests a new version of the
    World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to
    any technical specifications, but to changes in
    the ways software developers and end-users use
    the Web

Blogging
  • A blog (an abridgment of the term web log) is a
    website where entries are commonly displayed in
    reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be
    used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add
    content to a blog.
  • Many blogs provide commentary or news on a
    particular subject others function as more
    personal online diaries.
  • A typical blog combines text, images, and links
    to other blogs, web pages, and other media
    related to its topic.
  • The ability for readers to leave comments in an
    interactive format is an important part of many
    blogs.

Sustainable Resources Science and Information
Sources
  • Biofuels From An Information Perspective /
  • Kathleen Sands
  • Interest in biofuels is sweeping the nation due
    to a growing demand to relieve our nation's
    dependence on oil and to ease strains on the
    environment that are produced by using fossil
    fuels. In order for this industry to grow and
    become an integral part of our transportation and
    energy systems, people must be able to inform
    themselves of the issues, ideas and research
    activities associated with biofuels.

Sustainable Resources Science and Information
Sources
  • This makes it difficult for researchers and the
    general public to navigate easily through the
    resources that are currently available. In
    addition, there are a broad group of stakeholders
    who have a wide range of information needs on
    biofuels. Chemists, biologists, scientists,
    farmers, private companies, engineers,
    environmentalists, economists, government
    officials and the general public all want
    information on the topic.
  • To best serve all of these interested parties, a
    coordinated information system would create and
    provide central, organized, and easily accessible
    information resources. For many years, the
    National Agricultural Library (NAL) has served as
    a central hub of current agricultural
    information, providing for a diverse group of
    patrons. Some of our latest focuses have been on
    rural issues, alternative farming systems and
    technology transfer. This talk will present NAL's
    plans for improving the availability of
    information on biofuels as this important
    industry continues to grow.

Social Networking
  • A social network service focuses on the building
    and verifying of online social networks for
    communities of people who share interests and
    activities, or who are interested in exploring
    the interests and activities of others, and which
    necessitates the use of software.
  • Most social network services are primarily
    Web-based and provide a collection of various
    ways for users to interact, such as chat,
    messaging, email, video, voice chat, file

Nature Network (1)
  • Nature Network is the online meeting place for
    you and fellow scientists to gather, talk and
    find out about the latest scientific news and
    events. Science is an international endeavor and
    deserves a global stage for discussion.
  • Scientists can also benefit from interactions at
    the local level. That's why you'll see an
    increasing number of local city hubs on Nature
    Network, starting with Boston and London.

113

Virtual Research Environments
  • The purpose of a VRE is to help researchers in
    all disciplines manage the increasingly complex
    range of tasks involved in carrying out
    research. A VRE will provide a framework of
    resources to support the underlying processes of
    research on both small and large scales,
    particularly for those disciplines which are not
    well catered for by the current infrastructure.
  • VREs will add value to the research process
    across all disciplines by complementing and
    inter-working with existing resources and by
    being flexible and adaptable to changing
    requirements. The approach being taken is based
    on an architecture which is extensible and
    supports, but does not restrict, the resources
    needed by individual research teams.

124
Virtual Research Environments
  • The concept of a VRE is evolving, and the
    intention of this programme is not to produce a
    complete VRE, but rather to define and help to
    develop the common framework and its associated
    standards and to encourage others to work within
    this framework to develop and populate VREs with
    applications, services and resources appropriate
    to their needs.
