Company Day 2018: Future Perspective

How will technologies such as block chain, CRISPR/Cas, and big-data processing change our future? Who is going use them? The participating startups, SMEs, larger businesses, and other stakeholders gave an inspiring glimpse into the new technologies that WUR already has in house, as well as those WUR is working on for the future.

The keynote speaker was Rudi Cartuyvels of IMEC, a global leader in nano-electronics and digital technologies. He says that the main challenge is "to provide everyone with a healthy life on the one planet we have."  Nanotechnology can play an important role in that by measuring absorption of medicines, food, nutrient intake by plants, etc. However, collaboration is essential: "You need to merge the technological and professional expertise of companies and universities by physically bringing people together." He suggested the creation of a hub, under the working title “One Planet Gelderland Research Center”, in which WUR, Radboud University, and Radboud university medical center, collaborate with companies in the fields of agriculture, food, health, and nanotechnology.

Michiel Scheffer, provincial executive of the Province of Gelderland, added: "Initiatives like this One Planet Center are a challenge, because we don't have a fixed framework for them. We have to do that in order to create an ecosystem where everyone can be a part of a worldwide agenda."
