Keynotes

Chris Van Hoof - General Manager - OnePlanet Research Center & Vice-President R&D - imec

The OnePlanet Research Center: nanotechnology and digital technologies for precision health, precision nutrition and precision food production

In 2018 Earth Overshoot Day, the symbolic date that marks when we have used more resources than our planet can produce or renew in a year, fell on August 1. This means that humanity consumed the equivalent of a planet in just seven months. We need to change the way we produce and consume food, not just for the sake of our planet, but also for our individual health. And we need to tackle the fundamental question: will people be willing to change the way they live and eat. Tackling these challenges is exactly what we plan to do at OnePlanet Research Center, a new research and innovation center that imec, Wageningen University and Radboud University have started in Gelderland (the Netherlands). The OnePlanet Research Center will develop, accelerate and validate innovative solutions for precision preventive health, precision nutrition in the domains of food, agriculture and health in which chip technology and data analytics play a crucial role. Four research programs have been defined: Data Driven Nutrition & Health, Citizen Empowerment, Precision Production & Processing, and Tailored Supply Chain. In each program, interdisciplinary teams of researchers and engineers from the three founding partners will conduct application-driven R&D along technology and application roadmaps which are being created and validated with international and regional partners.

Seppe Nobels - Chef - Graanmarkt 13

For Seppe, cooking is inextricably intertwined with the environment where he lives and works.
Every day offers a new challenge for him and his partners to go look for the best products - preferably from the vicinity or directly from his own garden. His city honey is one of the basic products in his 'essential cuisine', which strongly takes the ecological footprint into account. That's why Graanmarkt 13 has its own urban agriculture project on its roof, with more than 100 different herbs and some lesser-known vegetable species. The other vegetables are grown sustainably in urban fringe areas. Seppe gets other seasonal ingredients from local farmers. It shouldn't come as a surprise that in 2015, Graanmarkt 13 was declared the best vegetable restaurant in Flanders in the green GaultMillau guide under Frank Fol's leadership.
In 2019, Graanmarkt 13 reached number 6 in the list of Best Vegetable Restaurants in the World©, published in the We're Smart® Green Guide. Seppe's vision on cooking is defined by respect for natural tastes and high-quality regional products.




More speakers will be announced soon.
