About the Webinar

In September, we are conducting a series of webinars discussing topics related to Agriculture, Agribusiness and Innovation in a Danish-Brazilian context. The goal is to establish innovation cooperation networks fostering new partnerships, R&D co-development and joint research projects.

The series includes 5 webinars conducted in English and takes place via the Zoom platform. Each session is moderated by Professors from Esalq, University of São Paulo, and includes presentations of agricultural tech solutions from 3-6 Danish startups and companies. The sessions run from 10:00 to 11:15 am (Brasília time) each day over 5 days in the period of 17th-23rd September, 2020.

The webinars are targeted a diverse group of professors, researchers, start-ups, companies, associations, public institutions, funding and export agencies from both Brazil and Denmark. Participants are invited to submit proposals for cooperation and joint projects via online forms after the sessions.

This initiative is the first activity within a partnership between Esalq/USP and the Danish Consulate General/Innovation Centre Denmark in São Paulo. Further, it is part of the agenda defined in an Innovation Cooperation Agreement established in October 2019 between the Brazilian National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI), Ministry of Economy, and the Royal Danish Embassy of Brazil, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
