The Representative of the European Commission in the Netherlands, Waterwatch Cooperative and Social Equity Fund are organising a special event “Investing in Space for AgriFood” on June 7th at the premises of the European Commission office in The Hague, as part of Europe’s leading forum on development, the European Development Days. The event is organised in ​cooperation with the Netherlands Space Office.

With participants from government, finance, and investment sectors and data companies, the event will explore the potential in the Netherlands and Europe to invest in the emerging sector of data and information services for the AgriFood sector. It will also analyse the growing potential for investment in this sector as well as define strategies to accelerate the sector in order to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals on food security, water and environment.
