Digital Global Food Summit - Berlin Science Week 2021

Welcome to Foodtropolis - We invite you!

One of the most important questions of the future is: how can a bio-based urban circular economy help to achieve the 2030 climate targets?

The urban space in particular is changing due to digitalization, new mobility concepts and innovative food start-ups. Urban "techno-farmers" are already supplying their regional communities with innovative, ecological products through aquaponics, vertical farming or food labs. So what impact can cell-cultured meat, or milk produced with microorganisms make to reduce the urban carbon footprint?

And: at what point can cities contribute to the energy transition by means of algae production? Or how can the sewage system in new development areas be converted into dry sanitation systems in order to save drinking water and recover phosphate as a finite raw material?

These are questions we will discuss with scientists and experts from all over the world at the Berlin Science Week on November 5, 2021.

We are especially pleased that the Peruvian Ambassador H.E. Elmer Schialer will give a welcome speech and that the Peruvian Embassy is a patron of our event this year. We are similarly pleased that Prof. Regina Birner from the German Bioeconomy Council will be our guest, as well as Alfred Jansen, Head of Corporate, Brand & Sustainability bei iglo and Dr. Volker Heinz, Chair of the German Food Technology Institute DIL.
