Agribusiness expertise in Flanders
Biotechnology doesn’t just have human health applications. Sustainability and eco-friendliness are key strategic goals for Flanders that plays a significant role in the region’s agribusiness sector.
With current consumer and industrial trends focusing more and more on sustainability, and given the size of the agribusiness industry, it’s no surprise that Flanders is home to world-leading players in green biotechnology.
Agricultural biotech makes up around 12% of all biotechnology activity in Flanders.
Because agribusiness is so complex, it’s difficult to pin down specific domains that aren’t intrinsically connected to other domains. From biobased industry, industrial farming and life sciences to food engineering, harvesting technologies, food science and nutrition, Flanders has the broad spectrum of agribusiness covered.
