About the Webinar

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

The series included 5 webinars. Each session was moderated by professors from Esalq/USP and included presentations of agricultural tech solutions from Danish companies. The sessions also sat the scene for Brazilian needs for innovation within the selected topics. The plan is to reverse the concept in a webinar series later this year, where Brazilian companies and solutions are presented to Danish stakeholders. The webinar series are the first activities within the newly established partnership between Esalq/USP and the Danish Consulate General/Innovation Centre Denmark in São Paulo.

Furthermore, the partnership and its activities are parts 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.
