The Delmarva Poultry University-Industry Partnership Committee is pleased to welcome the poultry industry, university, federal and state partners, and stakeholders to the Delmarva Poultry University-Industry Partnership Summit that will be held on March 13, 2019 (8:00 AM - 4:45 PM) at the Wicomico Civic Center.

After the Poultry Summit held in 2017 at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, a University-Industry Partnership Committee was formed.  The mission of the committee is to develop a coordinated approach within our Universities’ research, teaching and extension programs as well as the public and private sectors to identify priorities and needs of the poultry industry and facilitate approaches to address those needs.  Our vision is to create a strong, ongoing collaboration that engages all partners and stakeholders in ensuring a healthy poultry industry in the region.  In line with that mission, the committee requested updates from its constituents on their recent activities.  The following reports provide a summary of activities related to the poultry industry.  It is our hope that this consolidated report will foster further collaborations.

The Summit aims to enhance the collaboration between the universities and the poultry industry and together work for a vibrant poultry economy in our region.  

The universities serving Delmarva are the University of Delaware (UDEL), Delaware State University (DESU), University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP), University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) and the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech).  Posters will be displayed throughout the day of the Summit.  Faculty and university representatives will be available to answer questions.
