Rothamsted Open Innovation Forum
The Rothamsted Open Innovation Forum is a new initiative designed to accelerate collaboration for the development of game-changing innovations addressing global food and nutrition security challenges. High-level industry experts will come together at Rothamsted Research in January 2017 to work collaboratively on cutting-edge solutions to issues spanning the entire agricultural ecosystem, from pre-farm gate to consumers’ plates. Register today to join them.
Join ROIF in January 2017 at Rothamsted to:
Discover and debate the latest thinking and best practice in Open Innovation

Identify collaborative opportunities that will be key to your organisation
Network with decision makers in industry, academia and government
What is happening on the day:
Speakers’ corner offering opportunities to address questions and discuss ideas on a 1-2-1 basis
The online discussion platform for pre- and post-event discussion around the issues you are facing
Interact with your peers and find innovative solutions together
Parallel workshops to allow you to work collaboratively and come up with solutions to the challenges being faced

Welcome

As part of the development team behind the launch of the very first annual Rothamsted Open Innovation Forum, I would like to welcome you to this site. We hope you are reading this because you share our commitment to finding solutions to some of the key global food security challenges.

We have all heard the figures on population growth, the limitations on yield, the nutritional challenges and so on. I will leave it to you to read these elsewhere. This forum is about action.

With your involvement, we aim to do two things:

  • Discover an effective way that we can come together to start tackling these challenges by opening up and thereby accelerating the innovation process.
  • Bring potential collaborators together from across backgrounds, to begin that process.

Please have a look around the website, contribute to the online blackboard and be part of what we are sure will be a stimulating and action-oriented event, located here in our world class conferencing facilities at Rothamsted near London at Rothamsted Research, the oldest agricultural research institute in the world.

I look forward to meeting you all in January.

Yours,

Chris Dunkley
Programme Director and CEO, Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise
