Fraunhofer Green Deal Series – Combining efforts – Alternative Proteins and Smart Farming for Europe’s sustainable food production
1 December 2021 @ 15:00 – 16:00 CET
With the launch of the European Green Deal, the Fraunhofer EU Office Brussels started an event series to present the research organization‘s contribution to the Green Deal. The European Green Deal is the EU’s action plan to address the existential threat of climate change and environmental degradation. It was launched in 2020 as the new growth strategy for Europe’s successful transformation into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy.

Join the Fraunhofer discussion on the future of Europe’s food production. Learn about cutting-edge research on Alternative Proteins and Smart Farming and explore synergy effects of bioeconomy, biotechnology and Big Data for the successful implementation of the EU Farm to Fork strategy!
A steadily rising population in need for a healthy and balanced diet, the enormous environmental impact of food production and the growing pressure of weather extremes, require a resilient and sustainable agriculture. To master these challenges, Fraunhofer Institutes are developing and optimizing biotechnological processes for protein production and strategies for the digital transformation of farming systems.
We are looking forward to three expert presentations by Fraunhofer researchers on their contribution to the EU’s FOOD 2030 Pathways for Action and highlights from their projects “FutureProteins” and “COGNAC”. We are delighted to welcome Norbert Lins as our patron of this webinar. Norbert Lins is Member of the European Parliament and chair of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development. He will elaborate on the political perspective and the relevance of research and innovation for the Farm to Fork strategy.
Registration is open until 1 December, 15:00 CET
