This panel will be held in English and in hybrid form.

The European Union is committed to a circular economy as an essential basis for the sustainable growth of regions around the world. An internationalization of innovation from the regions to the world is therefore expected. With the world's population expected to grow to 9 billion people by 2050, the ability of food production systems to meet this increasing demand is one of the most pressing issues of our time. The water and resource consumption of food production and the generation of food waste are issues that need to be addressed.
This panel will address the issues of internationalization of innovation through the increasingly important topics of resource-efficient food production, digitalization of food chains and sustainability through innovations in the use of residual materials. Representatives from science, business and politics will discuss measures to tackle these challenges in a collaborative manner. A mind map created on a digital whiteboard will record the findings and promote a transformative change of perspective among the participants.
