The AgriTech Nordic Conference

AgriTech Nordic 2019 is going to engage the audience in how new IoT, sensors and logistics will revolutionize how food is produced.

Sensors, IoT and improved logistics enables new value-chains, not only for food, but for the data and insights that will be the cornerstone of the new bio-economy. This year AgriTech Nordic will focus on how developments in information technology will change the way we produce food and other bio-resources.

The event will be held on the 20th of June, in Steinkjer, Norway from 10:00 to 16:30
