TKI Agri & Food: fundamental and applied research plus valorisation

TKI Agri & Food

The Top Consortium for Knowledge and Innovation (TKI) coordinates the creation of the Knowledge and Innovation agenda of Top Sector Agri & Food, takes care of the research programme and advises the Top Team Agriculture & Food concerning arrangements with the Minister of Climate and Economic Affairs.

As far as the research programme is concerned, TKI Agri & Food supports innovation with a number of its own arrangements and offers co-financing for, for example, EU projects. So far this has resulted in around 500 research and innovation projects, large and small: TKI projects, MIT projects, NWO projects and EU projects that have all been supported financially by TKI Agri & Food.

An overview of all arrangements and options for co-financing of projects by TKI Agri & Food can be found on the Co-financing page. There you can find documents needed for the project justification and reporting.

Central themes TKI Agri & Food

All Top Sector Agri & Food research and innovation projects are divided over 5 central themes namely: Consumer & Society, Climate neutral, Healthy & Safe, Circular and Smart Technology. These central themes have replaced the previous roadmaps. You can find more information about each of the central themes, the appropriate contact person and the associated projects on the individual central theme pages.


Results

Top Sector Agri & Food research and innovation projects produce important results. You can find a selection of special projects on the Showcases page. In the TKI booklet entitled “Zaaien, oogsten en eten” [Sowing, harvesting and eating] and in the publication “Project Fact Sheet in 51 stories” a selection of engaging projects can be found.
