Keynotes

Jonathan Hertog - Director E-commerce & Digital - Delhaize




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 de cuisine - Graanmarkt 13

Driven by know-how, Graanmarkt 13's chef de cuisine Seppe Nobels enjoys the challenge of questioning the standard model of what renowned businesses are like. Both the culinary creations and the experience as a whole need renovation and evolution. The current business model of restaurants and bars is outdated and ready for innovation.

The needs of the customer are completely different from ten years ago. Everything needs to be faster and lighter these days. People are more conscious about what they eat. Stars and reviews used to be the main criteria when picking a restaurant. The name of the chef was of little consequence. Now chefs are the new rock stars, who even dare to contradict the guides. Individuality, innovation and excelling within a niche, those are the future. Be distinct, with vegetable dishes or seaweed, lab-grown meat or matured meat: you have to be the only one.

In a world where technology is always moving on, experience and a personal approach are the key to success. Local craftsmanship and the principle of ‘from farm to restaurant’ remain at the core of what Seppe will always keep supporting with class. We should preserve our identity and pride ourselves more on our knowledge. In the eyes of Nobels, Flanders is ready to become the new culinary hot spot of the world. Spain and Scandinavia were ahead of us, but we're ready for it. Never before have we been faced with such a big challenge as chefs. This is the vision that will be explained to us by the founder of urban farming in Flanders and an internationally awarded vegetable chef.




More speakers will be announced soon.
