Roadmap committees

The roadmaps are shaped by and monitored by our roadmap committees. Who are they?


A roadmap committee is made up of people who are active in agri-food companies (Captains of Industry) and knowledge institutes (Lead Scientists) and supported by a program manager from Flanders’ FOOD. Team members from the business world bring knowledge and expertise about technology, market insight and economic relevance, while the knowledge institute team members guarantee the scientific expertise. They are all impartial members who provide support through their advice and knowledge. They monitor the roadmap's progress and adjust when needed.
