On Tuesday 22 March in the afternoon, a lively open market space will be created at the Wageningen campus. During this market, agro-food companies, knowledge institutions, civil society organizations, social entrepreneurs, and other interested organizations can present themselves with an exhibition table and/or claim a pitch in the speakers corner. Partners can also choose to just visit the open market place for networking with the Embassies and other organizations. The last Open market space Food and Nutrition Security in Spring 2014 was a great success and an ideal network opportunity.
The open market place will start at 14:00 and is closed at 17:00 with drinks. Please subscribe by sending an email to Ilse Hennemann of Wageningen UR/CDI (). Please indicate how many people from your organization will attend, including their names and email addresses, specify the contact person, and indicate which option(s) you would like to use:

Food Security Exchange
The open market space is part of a five-day food security exchange visit to the Netherlands for policy staff from Dutch Embassies, organized by the Ministries of Foreign and Economic Affairs, Wageningen UR/CDI and the Food & Business Knowledge Platform. Approximately 20 food security specialists representing some 14 Embassies in partner countries for Dutch development cooperation will be joining to exchange their experiences in implementing Food & Nutrition Security policy. During the first days of the exchange visit, the group also includes Agricultural Attachés from Dutch Embassies. The five-day food security program consists of visits to The Hague, Wageningen and companies and partner organizations all over the Netherlands, selected primarily based on requests of the Embassies.
