World Food and Agriculture Conference
Courtyard by Marriott Stockholm Kungsholmen.
June 25-27,2018 Stockholm, Sweden


We invite all the Participants from around globe to attend World Food and Agriculture Conference which will take place during 2018 June 25-27, Stockholm, Sweden.

Aim of the conference:

  • To discuss the advancing knowledge and latest techniques in fields of Food and Agriculture.
  • Increasing and disseminating knowledge through meetings, and discussions
  • Strengthening and expanding the human network of all involved in this field in Europe, USA, Asia, UK, Sweden and globally.
  • Providing opportunities for young researchers for their professional development.
  • Identify knowledge gaps that need to be filled, providing a forum for scientific exchanges on recent advances in Food and Agriculture research.  

We believe these objectives can be achieved through disseminating workshops, symposiums and open discussion forums happening at our conference.

Agriculture is facing an unprecedented confluence of pressures that urges for profound changes in our food and agriculture (crops, livestock, forestry, fisheries, and aquaculture) systems.

“Sustainable food and agriculture is that of a world in which food is nutritious and accessible for everyone. It is world in which natural resources are managed in a way that maintain ecosystem functions to support current and future human needs”

“Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life”.

About 795 million people in the world – just over one in nine – were undernourished in 2014–16 mostly from developing countries. Significant progress in fighting hunger over the past decade should be viewed against the backdrop of a challenging global environment: volatile commodity prices, overall higher food and energy prices, rising unemployment and underemployment rates and, above all, the global economic recessions that occurred in the late 1990s and again after 2008. Increasingly frequent extreme weather events and natural disasters have taken a huge toll in terms of human lives and economic damage, hampering efforts to enhance food security.

In this digital age, conferences and face-to-face meeting are increasingly being substituted by webinars, video conferences and other forms of digital communication. There are some clear advantages with digital communication such as convenience, cost and time savings. Despite these advantages, the impact of communicating in person is much higher and is backed by scientific evidence. According to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, during face-to-face communication, synchronization of brain activity between partners occur leading to successful exchange of information. Besides, frequent eye-contact during face-to-face communication helps build trust between individuals and produce better outcomes such as increased creativity and productivity. Hence, conferences and meetings are necessary even in a world dominated by digital communication channels.

Thinkershub & Conferencesnest facilitate these face-to-face interactions between scientists, technologists and other innovators around the world through It covers a wide range of topics – from renewable energy to cancer – and aim to identify knowledge gaps in specific research areas. Sessions formats include keynote lectures, oral presentations, symposia, workshops and poster presentations. Besides, Conferencesnest will serve as a platform for young researchers from around the world to showcase their work and for professional development through workshops and discussion forums.

Stockholm: European Green Capital, knowledge-intensive and innovative region in the world as our Conference Venue

Stockholm is internationally recognized as one of the most knowledge-intensive and innovative regions in the world and as a leading supplier of solutions and products in key sectors such as Life Science, ICT and Cleantech. Stockholm is the first ever winner of the European Green Capital award and has adopted a unique approach to sustainability where every aspect of environmental, economic and social impact is part of the equation. Or in other words: just about everything that happens in Stockholm does so with sustainability in mind.
