CROP Innovation & Business
April 2 - April 4
On April 2-4, 2017 the bi-annual Genomics in Business conference will take place in Amsterdam. This three day conference will focus on how R&D-insights lead to novel Agri products that help solve the grand societal challenges.
The goal of the conference is to inspire, to provide possible solutions and to promote an open exchange of information. With this broader aim in mind we have, after seven very successful editions of Genomics in Business, changed the name to CIB: CROP Innovation & Business. The new name better reflects the broader appeal of the conference. The organisation wants to showcase how plant genomics and other related technologies will help tackle societal challenges such as climate adaptation, feeding the world, closing the loop i.e. circular economy and improving health.
Besides a new name also the content of the program is adapted and will be directed towards the central theme. New elements like pitches from start-ups, the involvement of young entrepreneurs and international students and round table discussions will be part of the program.
The conference promises once again to be a high-level international conference for executive management, entrepreneurs, start-ups, leading scientists and financial experts from the agro- and biotech industry. During the conference, new business models, partnerships and commercial applications in the field of genomics, traits and seeds will be presented and discussed.
