03.12.2019Münchner KünstlerhausGFS related datePresentation of the HORIZONTE issue "Sustainable Agriculture" in December 2019

Twice a year, our board member acatech, the German Academy of Science and Engineering, prepares forward-looking fields of technology and publishes them in the HORIZONTE series. 

With the acatech HORIZONTE, the academy aims to stimulate discussion about new technologies, point out political spaces and formulate options for action. In this way, acatech would like to contribute to a forward-looking innovation policy.

The second issue of acatech HORIZONTE on Cyber Security was published on July 12, 2019.

The next issue will deal with the topic of "Sustainable Agriculture". This topic is particularly relevant for acatech due to the high degree of digitization of "Smart Farming", with which the use of resources can be made much more efficient. 

We are delighted that we will be presenting this HORIZONTE issue together with acatech at the Münchner Künstlerhaus on 3 December 2019.

Algae are called the green gold of the future - because they are a valuable and sustainable raw material. They can be used in a variety of ways: They are used to produce biofuel, they are a novel food - both for humans and animals - can be used for cosmetics or as organic fertilizers. The Algae Tech Conference brings together key stakeholders from these fields to discuss technical and commercial issues. Of particular interest to us, of course, is the change in the food sector caused by algae.

22.05.2019 ab 9:00 UhrOslo, NorwegenGFS related dateUrban Future Global Conference

City Changers, are you in? Yes we are!

And for that we fly to Oslo, the beautiful capital of the Kingdom of Norway. Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein, Head and Founder of the Global Food Summit, will speak at the conference: about climate change and its impact on agriculture and food production.

The consequences of climate change have a major impact on agriculture. New technologies must be used to find solutions quickly. CRISPR, for example, a biochemical process for altering genetic material, is a good way of doing this. This can make plants more resistant to drought and less susceptible to pests, which in turn can reduce the use of pesticides. 

But there is also a need to look for food production methods in the city. Their advantages: they are close to the consumer without leaving a large CO2 footprint. Long transport distances are eliminated and less space and water are used. This is demonstrated, for example, by the production of Clean Meat, meat from stem cells, or insect proteins that are processed into burgers. Production plants for this purpose require little more space than the size of a garage.

This is how Next Generation Food goes.
