The Netherlands (NL) – CGIAR research programme enhances collaboration between the Netherlands and CGIAR researchers to jointly contribute to transformational change in agriculture around the world by advancing food system knowledge and joint public and private innovation. Linking expertise and partnering in research resulted in key contributions by researchers, policy-makers and stakeholders. Hence the conference’s subtitle ‘Advancing knowledge and innovation for food system transformation’.

NWO-WOTRO will celebrate the NL-CGIAR research programme and the partnerships within the programme with a fully online conference. Join us for two afternoons full of thematic sessions, interviews, keynotes, a poster session and much more that will inspire and inform scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders from companies, public authorities and NGOs. Together we aim to understand, improve and transform food systems.

Register now.
