The goal of the multi-year partnership is to link those who need technology and innovations, those who are developing it, and those who might finance and scale it through the following solutions:

  • Connecting innovators across geographies
  • Forging partnership between local innovators and food system practitioners
  • Attracting investments for local innovation
  • Supporting policy making to enable impact-oriented innovation
  • Opening trust-based dialogue around responsible technology
  • Providing an ecosystem for continued innovation for transformation at scale

Sean de Cleene, member of the executive committee at the WEF said, “A worldwide network of food innovation hubs is key to accelerating the innovation needed for the transition towards efficient, inclusive, sustainable, nutritious and healthy food systems. We believe that Foodvalley NL is exactly the right partner to establish such a leading Hub in Europe. They have developed a strong ecosystem of business, knowledge institutes, governments and NGOs, with the specific goal of scaling innovations together with other innovation clusters in and beyond Europe.”

Edith Schippers, chairman of the board at Foodvalley NL commented, “We see a perfect match between the ambition of Food Innovation Hubs and our own commitment to the development of sustainable food systems through commercialization of innovations, and to providing solutions to current and future systemic challenges. Establishing a leading European innovation hub is wonderful recognition of the work we have done in the past 15 years and enables us to accelerate and to enlarge our impact.”
