Event description

Description

Innovation is a much used word in the press, politics and popular culture but what it is and how to do it is not very well understood. By using relevant examples in the agribusiness and food industries the presentation will illustrate innovation “in action” and hopefully stimulate discussion and debate on why it is important and why we should both understand it and do it.
