The Netherlands (NL) – CGIAR research programme enhances collaboration between the Netherlands and CGIAR researchers to jointly contribute to transformational change in agriculture around the world by advancing food system knowledge and joint public and private innovation. Linking expertise and partnering in research resulted in key contributions by researchers, policy-makers and stakeholders. Hence the conference’s subtitle ‘Advancing knowledge and innovation for food system transformation’.

NWO-WOTRO will celebrate the NL-CGIAR research programme and the partnerships within the programme with a fully online conference. Join us for two afternoons full of thematic sessions, interviews, keynotes, a poster session and much more that will inspire and inform scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders from companies, public authorities and NGOs. Together we aim to understand, improve and transform food systems.

What can you expect?

  • Showcasing and learning from key novel research insights and outcomes of NL-CGIAR research (e.g. seed systems, on scaling, gender and equality)
  • Sharing of best practices, challenges and lessons learned
  • Showcasing the contributions made by NL experts to the CGIAR                                                                

We have a focus on a variety of subthemes next to the main theme that touch on the NL-CGIAR partnering and seed system approaches.

Few examples of the subthemes that will be addressed during the two days:

  • The NL-CGIAR partnership approach
  • Public-Private-Partnerships
  • Food system transformation
  • Cross-cutting approaches and mechanisms for seed access by majority of farmers
