The 6th Global forum for innovations in agriculture (GFIA)
April 1 - April 2
GFIA is the world’s largest showcase of sustainable agriculture innovations for increased profits and environmentally responsible farming practices. Unlike other major agriculture events, GFIA is uniquely committed to meeting the needs of both large and smallholder farmers by presenting the best available and emerging solutions with the potential to deliver higher yields without damaging our natural resources and climate.
GFIA is not only a forum for key stakeholders to discuss policy, strategy and solutions for a food secure future, but a live marketplace for suppliers to meet thousands of farmers and procurement managers from government, food producers, agri businesses, NGOs and cooperatives.
This year research groups (desert agriculture and water desalination) and startups will be present their innovations. KAUST professors and students will also give talks in the keynote, open theatre and conference program.
Join us at the KAUST booth #D26 on the 1 & 2 April 2019 at the Abu Dhani National Exhibition Centre, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
KAUST is an institution of enterprise and a gateway for industry looking to establish a foothold in Saudi Arabia.
We believe an innovation-focused mindset benefits everyone. Whether it is through sponsored research agreements or utilizing our laboratories, office spaces, or pilot testing and scale-up facilities, KAUST can help businesses problem solve and accomplish their goals for growth in the region.
