NL-CGIAR Conference | Partnering for Global Food Security

On 2-3 November 2022, NWO will organise a fully online conference for the NL-CGIAR Research Programme. Two afternoons (from 12.00 CET) full of thematic sessions, interviews, keynotes, a poster session and much more. All on one online platform.


The theme 'Partnering for Global Food Security - Advancing knowledge and innovation for food system transformation' refers to the collaboration between the Netherlands and the public, agricultural research network CGIAR.

Goal of the event

  • Share best practices, challenges and lessons learned.
