From Shonai to the world, what is the new sophistication of agribusiness?

〜Fusion of Tradition × Specialty Products × Advanced Research

A special program, "From Shonai to the World, What is the new sophistication of agribusiness? 〜(Partner: Shonai Agribusiness Research Association) will be held within the Yamagata Forum 2022 (Saturday, August 20, 2022).

Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Yamagata Forum 2022


The Shonai Agribusiness Research Group, launched in 2021, aims to create demonstration themes that lead to new products, services, and industries in collaboration with researchers and ventures outside the region, starting with issues related to local agriculture and livestock farming and local businesses that want to try something new. This year, we will introduce examples of demonstrations between Noen Sadataro Corporation, the lead organizer of the study group, and ventures, and invite several new agri-tech or food-tech ventures to take the stage and present the technologies they possess and specific ideas for collaboration.

The program is not limited to the themes of this session, but includes discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from a variety of perspectives. For more information, please refer to the forum website.

*The event will be held after taking measures against new coronavirus infection on the day of the event.
