Where Agrifood meets Innovation

Agrifood Innovation Event
The Agrifood Innovation Event covers 3D Food Printing, Protein Transition, Smart Farming and Vertical Farming in several parallel sessions at one location during one day.

The reason for combining these topics is that professionals in Agriculture and Food are more and more confronted with a broad range of innovations in their respective sectors. The combination of all these topics helps to understand each other and opens up opportunities to collaborate between the different value chains.

The future of food is being shaped by 3D printing technology, which has the potential to transform the way we interact with food. Discover the latest research and development on taste, texture, structure, flavor, color, nutrition, and learn about the ingredients and technologies for 3D food printing, and new business models. However, much research is required to change the hype into reality.
Which industries will be influenced by the technology? Which food components can be printed in the near future? Read more……

Vertical farming is another innovative methodology for vertical cultivation of agricultural products. Vertical farms can be built in new or existing buildings and provide significant benefits in environmental sustainability and human health, minimizing the need for water and nutrients, and eliminating pesticides and fungicides, which are no longer needed. You will learn about available technologies, plant condition issues, energy use, sustainability, and how vertical farming can play a role in the protein transition. Read more…..

The protein transition is a crucial issue, and we need to make a transition to high-quality protein-rich alternative food sources, while simultaneously considering human health and environmental sustainability.

Discover the latest research on plant-based proteins and cell-based meat, life cycle analysis, impact on the agriculture industry, and investment opportunities. Read more…..

Smart Farming has reached a point where it is not only possible to collect vast quantities of data but also to control different pieces of equipment or monitor individual animals. A growing number of farmers are starting to adopt digital technology and data-driven innovations.

Discover the latest technologies for Farming 4.0, Reduction of Nitrogen, methane, particulate matter and smell, how photonics can support farming, plant and crop science for improved resource-use, and new business models. Read more…..
