Published on
October 7, 2020

From 20 October, a series of free webinars will be given as part of the Webinar Series: Food for Challenging Times. This is an initiative of the Agrotechnology & Food Sciences Group in collaboration with Wageningen Academy. The aim is to dive into the strategies and solutions for our food systems and nutrition in the future.

Food for challenging times

We all know that transitions are needed in the areas of food chains, food security, nutrition and health. How do the necessary transitions relate to the world we now live in? And which solutions can contribute to the future? We aim for interaction with the participants in order to set straight were the emphasis of future research should be. Feel invited to listen, discuss with and learn from the experts during this series of webinars.

Calendar and topics

The topics will be covered by experts in the field of food & health from Wageningen University and Research, and also from outside businesses. We'd like to state that these webinars are non-sponsored events and that business speakers are asked for their expertise. The host of the webinars is Margot Nijkamp-Diesfeldt.

20 October Is healthy food the holy grail to recovery?
5 November Do we need new visions on food security?
15 December Does AI offer real answers for the business challenges in agrifood?
