FoodNexus Visioning Summit 2018

FoodNexus Visioning Summit 2018

Paris, 29-30 May 2018

The food industry is facing huge challenges to feed billions of people while, climate change and land erosion are already making it more difficult to produce food. Also, where wide scale hunger affecting ca 800 million people prevents economic development, health related problems due to imbalanced diets (overeating, lack of micronutrients) lead to staggering health care costs.

Meeting such challenges efficiently requires us to develop a clear vision – and make sure we as decision makers act upon it together. This is why FoodNexus is organizing the first FoodNexus Visioning Summit to provide clear recommendations on how to act, departing from the question: 

“What are the most urgent problems facing the food industry in the next 10 years, and how can we best meet these challenges?”

The event will be arranged to target five aspects of our common challenges to solve, and for which new initiatives across the European food system must be taken.

Themes of the Visioning Summit 2018:

1. Food security and sustainability
2. Food quality and safety
3. Food for health and wellbeing
4. The Digital agenda – Integration of novel technologies with social innovations
5. New business and innovation ecosystems

We will bring together experts from academia with leading industry partners and government (EU, National) officials, and the recommendations will be widely distributed after the event.

Here you will find the Programme and Speaker Profiles. The Programme will be updated regularly.
