bioepic2In November 2007, the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education approved the North Dakota State University Bio Energy and Product Innovation Center (NDSU BioEPIC). The formation of this center is the culmination of the biomass and bioproducts initiative activities and discussions that occurred throughout 2007.

A pivotal event was the BioOpportunities Workshop in May 2007, during which 70 industry and government leaders joined more than 60 faculty and staff from throughout NDSU for a daylong discussion. This workshop endorsed formation of such a center.

The center’s purpose is to serve as a single site at NDSU to develop, coordinate and promote development of bio-related activities at NDSU and within North Dakota.

Serving as chair of the center is David Saxowsky, associate professor, Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics.  Previous leadership was provided by Drs. D.C. Coston, Ken Hellevang, and Cole Gustafson.
