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 Program Committee of the 30th IFAMA World Conference, Rotterdam, the Netherlands invites you to submit a full paper, a proposal for an organized session, proposals for teaching cases and applications for the student case competition.

The theme of the conference is “Food for the Future” and to this end, we suggest a number of thematic fields as a guideline to address contemporary challenges in the (triple helix) interplay between academia, government, industry and civil society. We would like to encourage contributors to address one of these thematic fields (see ifama2020.org/themes/).

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