Workshop and lectures
The Biokennis week starts with 2 days of webinars (Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 January). Online workshops with maximum maximum knowledge transfer. For the webinars during Biokennis Week, the Programme Committee is looking for businesses, NGOs, government bodies, researchers and consultants to demonstrate that organic is a viable alternative to traditional farming and agri-food production. We can only tackle today’s challenges related to climate, sustainability and health by working together, and that starts with informing, inspiring and motivating one another. Play your part in this by contributing to Biokennis Week!

What will be the main topics during the Biokennis Week?
The Programme Committee has identified a number of key topics. Proposals that are aligned with these themes have more chance of being included in the programme.
Biokennis Week will pay extra attention to various topics, such as young organic farmers. For example, the ‘Bioboer zoekt Bioboer’ match-making concept attracts young entrepreneurs to the trade fair, with their own and sometimes new revenue models. There will also be special attention for wholesale and retail with the theme of ‘Market development: how can we win over consumers?’. The topic of ‘Short chains: are there effective revenue models in a cooperative approach?’ will appeal to enterprising farmers. Besides that, we will be focusing on traditional farmers and those in transition with topics that bridge the knowledge gap between the traditional approach and organic, e.g. grassland management, grass-clover, strip tilling, organic fertilizers and under-sowing. If your proposal fits with one of these topics, it will have more chance of being included in the programme.
