Join us in Wageningen on Friday November 25 for this inspiring event, organised by TNO and Wageningen University & Research. The budget for our Strategic Innovation Programme Food and Biobased Innovations was extended in October. New projects within the programme can start early 2017 and new partners are welcome. Join the event and take your chance to help define the projects for 2017 and beyond.
On 25 November, Top Sector representatives as well as leading companies such as IPSS, AVEBE, Darling and Avantium will reflect on the future they see for Food and Biobased Innovations in the context of the TNO-WUR Strategic Innovation Programme. We will conclude the day with a session dedicated to major developments in food reformulation, ingredient functionality and biorefinery technology. Current and new partners will be able to share their views and set agenda topics with us, topics which we will explore further in the sessions to come in 2017.
Registration for this event is still open!
The registration fee for this event is €50.
