New Zealand – Ireland Agritech Summit 2022
Explore new opportunities for cooperation and building strategic innovation partnerships.
Join the conversation and hear the voice of the farmer, the voice of agritech businesses and the voice of the planet.
Explore the common ground between Irish and New Zealand agritech ecosystems for the purpose of seeding collaboration and strategic innovation partnerships.
In an increasingly important era of climate crisis, agritech represents the future of both our primary industries and our global impact on food production systems around the world.
Join AgriTech New Zealand and AgTech Ireland online at this engaging, knowledge sharing Summit. What can Ireland and New Zealand learn from each other? Agritech researchers, innovators and investors will share their experiences and insights.
New Zealand and Ireland are both island nations with an export focus, cultures of innovation and deep affinity with the land. Each country is a natural market for the other’s technology and both countries have an aspiration to have a wide global impact. There is already a history of connection across our primary sectors and, since we face many of the same challenges, there is real potential to accelerate our agritech businesses through collaboration.
In both countries, strengthening agritech ecosystems are creating new opportunities for growth alongside improved primary production. Join the conversation and hear the voice of the farmer, the voice of agritech businesses and the voice of the planet.
