7.6 billion people are currently living on earth – and the number keeps growing. How to feed them all is a fundamental challenge for the global community. In this plenary session the topic will be addressed in detail by leading experts: How can food production be optimized? What roles will digitization and robots play in agriculture? What are alternative sources of nutrition? And what can modern plant research contribute?
