How to create a future proof agri-food system? That's what academia, scientists, entrepreneurs, policy makers and many others will discuss on this symposium.

Towards a healthy, resilient and sustainable agri-food system

The SpaceBakery team aims to rethink the wheat value chain in terms of resilience and sustainability. In the light of the changing climate, we want to produce healthier and more nutritious wheat-based staple foods.

To make this ambition more tangible, we envisioned to bake bread on Mars.

As climate conditions on Mars are extremely restricted, this harsh environment challenged us to explore disruptive space technologies that generate important knowledge on how to find innovative solutions for the wheat value chain on Earth.

In this light, we, the SpaceBakery team, will present our results of the past two years. But more importantly we want to interact with you. This event will bring together academia, scientists, entrepreneurs, policy makers and many others to discuss and demonstrate on how to create a future proof agri-food system.
