  • Deep Tech for Good: No Citizens Left Behind [Online Event]

    The Covid-19 pandemic is an important reminder of the long-term importance of investing in and building human capital – health, knowledge, capabilities, skills and resilience - that are critical to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. This is especially true in Africa, which is home to the world’s youngest population and also to some of the toughest human capital challenges.

  • The Future of Food: Printed Meals [Online Event]

    As the global need to innovate and to sustainably feed our planet becomes an imperative, science and technology will be essential in helping to solve this global food challenge. And one of these solutions could be with 3D printing technology, which is not new, though it is usually associated with creating materials to build cars, planes and houses. But after Russian cosmonauts printed meat in space — showing how useful the applications of 3D printing can be — food printing has gained traction.

  • Building Our Food Resilience with Science and Deep Tech [Online Event]

    The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted global food supply chains and serves as a stark reminder of the importance of food security. Singapore imports over 90% of our food need from over 170 countries, and we are vulnerable to shifts in the global supply chain. The nation’s “30 by 30” goal – to produce 30% of its nutritional needs by 2030 – aims to strengthen our food resilience by developing urban agriculture and aquaculture, and pushing innovations in food science and technology. To ensure the sustainability of our food system, food consumption and waste management are also key pieces in building a circular food economy.

  • Future of Food: Closing the Loop [Online Event]

    In the context of Singapore’s 30 by 30 ambition to produce more food locally, much more resources such as energy, water and nutrients will be needed. In the same vein, in the Netherlands, the aim is to have a carbon neutral agricultural system by 2050, with a reduction and maximally efficient use of raw materials. Both countries will have to innovate and use new technologies to minimise the use of resources and nutrients.

  • Future of Food Technology and Innovation [Online Event]

    By 2050, global food systems will need to feed more than 9 billion people sustainably and nutritiously. Emerging technology, innovation, behavioural changes, and multi-stakeholder collaboration have the potential to improve global food security and nutrition to drive rapid progress in the sustainability, inclusivity and efficiency of food systems.

  • Future of Food: Alternative Proteins [Online Event]

    By 2030, Asia is expected to contribute an estimated 60% of global growth - with Asia-Pacific contributing around 90% of the 2.4 billion new members of the middle class entering the global economy. In view of this, animal-based proteins cannot sustainably feed this growing middle class. Assuring future proof protein consumption requires a shift in protein production.

  • Future of Food: Valuing Food Waste [Online Event]

    Food waste occurs at all levels from production to consumption. In the Netherlands, the most significant food-waster is the consumer, with the average person throwing away about 34 kg of food at home every year. The Dutch government has adopted the UN target of reducing food waste by 50% in 2030.
