About The Forum

An annual discussion and networking event to reflect on major policy developments, business trends and innovation breakthroughs that are shaping the direction and future of agriculture.

This year’s Forum focuses on the idea of centring Lithuania as a go-to country for innovative AgriFood Tech solutions.

Breakthrough innovations based on Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and Robotics have the potential to completely redefine agriculture how we know it. From productivity and efficiency increases to waste reduction and healthier foods – the agriculture of the future is destined to be more sustainable, efficient and competitive. Yet all of the soon-to-be breakthroughs need be developed, use cases explored, solutions tested and products commercialized. AgriFood Tech needs sandboxes, and Lithuania could be one of them. What’s needed to make it happen?

While exploring this theme the Forum will encompass topics of innovation development, international cooperation, new policy initiatives, business trends, networking and much more.
