At the IFAMA 2020 conference in Rotterdam, home of the biggest port in Europe, today’s pressing food and agricultural challenges will be addressed drawing upon the triple helix expertise of academics, business and government. Societal, human development challenges and goals mean that companies in agrifood need to transform, impacting their daily operations but also their future strategic outlooks.

The conference will host multiple stakeholders of the Global food system and include academic, business as well as combined (discussion) sessions and panels. Moreover, we expect around 30 international student teams to compete in the renown IFAMA student case competition.

The IFAMA2020 organizers invite you to contribute by submitting a paper abstract, organized session, teaching case and/or student case competition.

More information on applications for the student case competition will be available soon on this website.
