The GreenTech Summit takes place on 12 June during GreenTech and offers decision-making investors, growers, and suppliers a glimpse into the inner operations of autonomous technology - not only in horticulture, but also in shipping.
Developments in autonomous technology offer opportunities for reducing interdependence in horticulture and more flexibility in the sector. There is a great need for successful entrepreneurs in horticulture, but they are scarce. Horticulture depends on location, infrastructure, specialist skills, "green fingers" and the availability of labor.
The GreenTech Summit on 12 June will be an inspiring meeting for top men and women from the sector. Three keynote speakers give their views and share their experiences with autonomous technology in the horticultural sector.
The Summit is opened by Mariska Dreschler (Director Horticulture GreenTech of RAI Amsterdam). The first speaker is Dr. Silke Hemming (Head of Greenhouse Technology scientific research team at Wageningen University & Research). Hemming gives an update on the latest developments in autonomous greenhouses under the title "Autonomous Greenhouses - Horticulture beyond the green thumb".
Subsequently, leader Tracy Metz leads an interactive panel discussion with young professionals and entrepreneurs in horticulture and technology: "Autonomous Technology - Experiences & Expectations", about the current state of affairs, experiences and expectations in the field of autonomous technology.
The next speaker is Ir. Klaas Visser (Rear Admiral (ME) assistant professor of Marine Engineering at Delft University of Technology). His contribution concerns "Changing the ship building and design industry with autonomous technology".
The Summit is closed by keynote speaker Jitske Kramer with the theme "Building tribes with power and love." How will we, the people, change our work and behavior in an increasingly technological environment? "
