Description

Understanding agriculture’s triple helix – how the consumer, environment and technology will influence the rural economy of the future.

Thursday 9th November at Easton and Otley College, Easton, Norwich NR9 5DX

As a founding partner of Agri-Tech Week, the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association is once again delighted to be hosting this special event aimed at anyone interested in the future of agricultural and the rural economy on either side of the farm gate.

This year our event considers the future influences (economic, financial, geo-political, scientific / technological) on UK agriculture and how Norfolk’s farmers might find ‘their’ way in an increasingly uncertain and complex world. In particular, it asks what role agri-tech has to play, where new developments are coming from and whether we are creating the right skills and talent to cope with the future.

Taken altogether, we ask how we meet the future needs and demands of the consumer, on the one hand, and the rural economy on the other.

The key speaker at this event, delivering the RNAA Leadership Lecture, will be Professor Allan Buckwell, a pre-eminent agricultural economist and Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for European Environmental Policy.

In addition, our panel of farmers and agriculturalists will be there to explore the big issues of the day and provide their own views in a discussion and question time, hosted by BBC Farming Today’s, Anna Hill.
