Stakeholder Engagement Initiative from PAIHE

The Pennsylvania Industrial Hemp Engine (PAIHE), a National Science Foundation sponsored project, was established last year to develop a robust industrial hemp ecosystem centered in Pennsylvania’s I-81 Corridor, built upon self-sustaining collaborative research and demonstration programs addressing plant genetics, bioengineering, crop production and processing, consumer and industrial product development, manufacturing, distribution, and reclamation.

To expand and deepen stakeholder engagement, the PAIHE is now convening regular stakeholder engagement meetings. The aims of the stakeholder meetings are to:

  • Inform stakeholders about the activities of the PAIHE within areas of interest

  • Obtain input and direction from stakeholders about PAIHE directions and priorities

  • Expand the number of stakeholders participating in the PAIHE

Stakeholder engagement meetings will be held regularly from 11:00 - 1:00 on Tuesdays and will be held via zoom to promote participation. Separate monthly meetings will focus on each of the primary PAIHE activity areas: Production and Processing, Consumer and Industrial Product Development, and Economic Development and Public Policy.

All meetings will be separately announced, and agendas will be provided in advance. Meetings are open to all and will be recorded. Attendance is free. To register for a meeting and obtain the zoom link, please visit or send an email message to Ariel Matz at
