Sustainable agriculture and food production

The Netherlands can lead the way in the transition to a sustainable agri-food system that prevents further loss of in biodiversity. The European and global context of science, legislation and trade in data is the determining factor in this regard. Researchers, tech companies, farmers, the food industry and consumers will each play their part in the transition to a sustainable agri-food system. How can we reconcile human health, animal health and sustainable food production?

How could we as a society make the transition to sustainable agriculture and food production through technology as digitalisation and genetic engineering? What are the interests and barriers in the “protein transition”: the transition from animal to plant-based food? Is cultured meat a realistic option? How do we prevent zoonoses? We support democratic decision-making on climate and agricultural policy by undertaking research and dialogue with all the parties involved: “bio”, farmers, industry and the public.
