"Data competency is crucial for KWS"
Dr. Alexander Wiegelmann, KWS SAAT SE
By what criteria does KWS SAAT select which startups they would like to partner with? What are the dos and don'ts when it comes to these types of collaborations? We took the opportunity to discuss these points with Dr. Alexander Wiegelmann in the run-up to the Pioneering AgTech in Berlin, which is jointly organised by SmartHectar Innovation and Farm & Food 4.0.
The annual Congress Farm & Food 4.0 took place for the third time on 22 January 2018 in Berlin. A number of acclaimed speakers discussed the digital future of the agri-food industry before some 400 participants as part of the International Green Week. The motto of the congress, which was organised by the Deutscher Bauernverlag (the “German Agricultural Publishing House”), Berlin, was: “In the middle of a revolution – seeking opportunities for the value creation of tomorrow”.
