The Dutch agrifood system is highly mechanised, and, consequently, also highly knowledge-intensive. In this tour, you will get to meet and discuss with several knowledge professionals from the agrifood sector, each providing new insights into relationships with agrifood business partners, government and other institutions at regional, national and even international level. You will meet partners from the province, the famous ‘Food Valley’ cluster managers and knowledge partners, engaging you in their challenges and experiences with financing structures, ownership and the influence of the international context on the local level.
The tour programme is as follows:
Cluster organisation: ZLTO (The Southern Agriculture and
Horticulture Organization) + Province of Gelderland
Cluster Guide: Mark de Jong (ZLTO)
RE-Tour Food Innovation Tour
The tour organisers invite you to deepen your encounter with them during a dedicated Tours-Revisited session on the Working Day. For this tour, Pieter Rijzebol, senior policy advisor responsible for the investment climate in the Food Valley region, will introduce the challenges that the government faces in facilitating cluster development in this area: how can we create a local buzz? How can government help attract startups? Having met the cluster and heard all of the Summit Day inspiration, we invite you to roll up your sleeves and think along on this specific business case!
