"Dinner for (every)one?" Foodtech strategies in Israel and the EU and the Role of Research and Innovation; Online Expert Talk October 16,2023 | 10:00-11:30 (CEST)

[Translate to Englisch:]

On the occasion of "World Food Day 2023", the German Embassy in Israel, the Office of the Free State of Bavaria in Israel and the Scientific Coordination Office (WKS) Bavaria-Israel of the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) invite you to a digital expert discussion "Dinner for (every)one?" Foodtech strategies in Israel and the EU and the Role of Research and Innovation".

The production processes of food to feed a growing world population are currently largely unsustainable. As a result, they are drivers of climate change, environmental damage, biodiversity loss and resource scarcity and suffer equally from these factors and their consequences. Against this background, a change towards a resilient and ecologically, socially and economically more sustainable food production system is inevitable in order to ensure healthy nutrition for all people in the long term.

The digital panel of experts will focus on this topic and its challenges and discuss various innovative solutions and development strategies against the background of different experiences from Israel, Germany and the EU.

The event will be opened with a welcoming note by the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Israel, H.E. Steffen Seibert and the Ambassador of the Delegation of the European Union to Israel, H.E. Dimiter Tzantchev. This will be followed by an introduction by Karen Fabbri, Deputy Head of Unit in DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission. The discussion panel will include Alla Voldman, VP of the Good Food Institute Israel, Prof. Stephan Schwarzinger from the University of Bayreuth, Shlomi Kofman, CEO of the Israel-Europe R&D Directorate and Dr. Christina de Wit from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
