2nd Workshop: Food and Nutritional Security – report

Food and nutritional security is one of the major societal challenges for Europe and developing countries. Constantly increasing world population demands intensifying crop productivity but new challenges are arising that in addition call for improving nutritional quality and assuring safety at the point of consumption. On 2 June 2016, the European Technology Platform ‘Plants for the Future’ (Plant ETP) in collaboration with MEP Jasenko Selimović organised a workshop to discuss the contribution of plant research and plant breeding to address the challenges of food and nutritional security.
