Invitation to the online Global Food Summit

Invitation: Global Food Summit on 28th und 29th April 2021: Foodtropolis – Urban. Circular. Food.

Munich, Berlin, April 7th, 2021: Given the first Digital Global Food Summit on April 28th and 29th, 2021 from the Wagner - Salons on Munich's Theresienhöhe, Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein, Head and Founder, states:

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

The future is a state of mind, and it has a name: Bioeconomy. We are today where we would never have dreamed of being ten years ago: We produce edible proteins from Co2, bacteria and energy, we produce lettuce in space or in polar ice and we can predict future flavors and thus sales markets with artificial intelligence.

So are we at the beginning of a bioeconomic age?

Europe has consistently taken the path in this direction with the Green Deal. But what does this mean for our agriculture, for our society and for our cultivation and production methods along the food chain? And what does it mean in the global race to innovate in the food sector? Because progress is in an acceleration phase and this is taking place in China, in the Asian region and in the USA.

We would love to talk about this with you, our international guests and start-ups:
On:April 28th & 29th 2021 9.00 am

Global Food Summit – Lending a voice to the future of food

In growing metropolitan regions, the population expects to be able to age healthily and demands that the sustainability targets for 2030 will be taken into account along the food chain. We can achieve these goals with new methods and technologies, but these will change dramatically what and how we eat.

Every year, the Global Food Summit brings together experts from science, industry, associations, politics and the media to discuss how new technologies will affect the way of life. A collaboration of University of California, Berkeley, Wageningen University, Bavarian State Government, Technical University of Munich, National Academy of Science and Engineering and Global Food Summit.
