BioHorizon Food Brokerage Event

Flash Presentations

BioHorizon invited researchers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to submit flash presentations for a chance to present their project idea addressing one of the topics contained in the 2018 work programme for ‘Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy’ (SC2) or for the Key Enabling Technologies call focusing on Biotechnology (KET-B) during the brokerage event. Following a review process carried out by the organisers, a number of speakers have been chosen to make a short presentation in one of the three sessions. We would like to thank everyone who made a submission. The slides accompanying the presentations, including those not selected for presentation on the day due to time constraints, will be made available for download here in the days after the event.


The flash presentations will take place between 10:45-11:45 in three parallel sessions. The location and sequence of presentations in each session is provided below. There will be a live webstream.
