Originally, this lecture was conceived as a conference within the framework of Tecno Fidta 2020. However, due to the current situation of the pandemic, we decided to continue organizing the event to carry it out online, with live broadcasting from the Red Alimentaria's platform, and free access.
“it is an innovative proposal for the food community with the aim of discussing the requirements and new developments for food, because we understand that food systems need a comprehensive, interdisciplinary and participative approach as the only way to a true sustainability.”
Aimed to all the players of the food and agriculture chain, “it is an innovative proposal for the food community with the aim of discussing the requirements and new developments for food, because we understand that food systems need a comprehensive, interdisciplinary and participative approach as the only way to a true sustainability”, stated Devora Dorensztein, director of Red Alimentaria.
Meanwhile, Fabián Natalini, Project Manager of Tecno Fidta, said: "we continue with Tecno Fidta Conecta digital proposals; we are very pleased with the answer and the participation of all the players of the industry. We really see there is great interest and need of exchanging knowledge and experiences in these times marked by transformation and uncertainty. We will continue with new virtual cycles until we can meet again in the exhibition's aisles”.
