Future education in the food industry

Digitalisation, new technologies, sustainability and urbanisation are affecting Rotterdam's food industry at unparalleled speed. If we want to maintain our front-runner position, practical research into innovation is paramount. But contiguous education to provide the skills of the future is essential as well. Research and educational institutions, businesses and the City of Rotterdam plan on tackling this challenge together. Over the next few years, we will be executing a research agenda focused on tomorrow's necessary business models.
