A projected population boom in low and middle-income countries will increase demand for food by 60% by 2050. Factors such as climate change, limited land fit for cultivation, and water scarcity are challenging our ability to meet this growing demand. Technological and advanced solutions introduced by food producers, farmers, ag and horticultural companies, and governmental organizations will be key for the shift to more sustainable and advanced food production. Highly innovative countries within the ag sector such as the U.S. and Sweden will play a vital role in the development and acceleration of more sustainable food and ag solutions.

Business Sweden USA is organizing an Advanced Agtech webinar with RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden (SWE), world-renowned agricultural research university UC Davis (US) and industry pioneers ZTractor (US) and Ekobot (SWE) to identify key learnings and gaps in technology and solutions to support future collaborations between the U.S. and Sweden.

We invite American and Swedish companies within automation, robotics, and digitalization for agriculture and farming to take part in this interactive discussion and identify opportunities for collaboration.

Speakers:

  • Jessica Ferklass, Project Manager Business Sweden (SWE + US)
  • Jonas Engström, Head of Digitalized Agtech Testbed RISE (SWE)
  • Professor Stavros G. Vougioukas, Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering UC Davis (US)
  • Erik Jonuks, CEO/Partner Ekobot (SWE)
  • Bakur Kvezereli, CEO/Founder ZTractor (US)
