New network at the interface of agricultural research, industry and politics attracts numerous visitors at the kick-off

On May 8, 2023, the Business and Stakeholder Network, a network sponsored by the Cluster of Excellence PhenoRob, the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Bonn and the Theodor Brinkmann Foundation, kicked off with a career fair that primarily addressed young scientists. The approximately 300 visitors of the fair had the opportunity to find out more about non-academic career paths. The fair showcased 30 companies on two floors from a wide range of sectors, including companies and organizations from the agricultural sector with a direct connection to the cluster’s research topic as well as exhibitors from related fields, such as autonomous driving, surveying and nutrition. The range of exhibitors extended from startups, ministries and associations to worldwide operating companies.
