1) Agrotech: Innovative ag-tech solutions for agricultural challenges in India

Food and agriculture is a large part of the GDP of India. The sustainable development of the Indian F&A sector is very important in order to be able to feed 9 billion people by 2050. Currently, two of the key challenges in the Indian F&A sector are a scattered agricultural landscape dominated by small/ marginal farmers and increasing drought caused by climate change. Increased availability of technologies like internet, smartphones and satellites paves the way to tackle these challenges with innovative technical solutions.


Panel members:
Berend de Jong (CCO) – Van der Sat
Niels Lauwers – 30MHZ
Aakash Parekh (Regional Head, Europe & South East Asia) – CropIn
Kuchibhotla Srinivas (Partner Food & Agri) – KPMG 

Moderator: Jeroen Leffelaar (Managing Director F&A Innovation) – Rabobank


2) Healthcare 4.0

Healthcare has been a primary need for most developing countries and has been a focus of the SDGs for a while now. It is interesting that “healthcare” has moved to “health-tech” in recent times and it is a good moment to understand this transition and what it means for businesses and communities today. Health is constantly faced with the dilemmas between reaching out to the needy versus the high cost of high tech. Several other such issues, insurance, growing populations, shifting priorities, environment and the role of governments and financial institutions have significant influence on this industry. At the panel discussion on health at the NIBM 2019, we provide the unique opportunity to listen and question a range of experts from a start-up, robotics, global corporate, research scientists to the Government. While we don’t aim to solve the world’s problems on healthcare, we would definitely provide food for thought in a out-of-the-box and pragmatic way. Do come and join in the lively discussion and share your views and experiences.


Panel members:
Mr. Marcel Floor (Programme Manager) – Ministry of Health, Welfare & Sport
Mrs. Anupam Nayak (Founder) – Eindhoven Medical Robotics
Mr. Jitendra Shitole (Business Marketing Manager) – Philips
Mr. Jan-Eric Zandbergen (CEO) – Bilthoven Biologicals

Moderator: Sarbani Bhattacharya (board member FINISH MONDIAL)


3) IT

Over the decades, Information Technology (IT) is becoming critical function for the company across the globe. Functions like sales, marketing, supply chain, business to consumer, business to business, HR and other important functions need IT to manage their business operations.
Over the years, IT has evolved and instead of becoming just a commodity market, IT is becoming the key pillar of the organizations to strength it’s business operations, streamlining it’s back office and it became the centralized function for the global companies.
IT has reached to the new dimensions by providing a lot of new insights from operational data to sales and marketing team. Using IT, companies are becoming digital savvy and agile. Traditional IT has reached it’s peak and therefore lot of innovation such as virtual reality, RPA, blockchain, automation is happening to reduce the human efforts, achieve efficiency gains and cost benefits.
India became the major hub to deliver IT in the optimal way. Many countries evolved in delivering IT to the major companies, but India stood out the best option in delivering IT to the global & local companies. In this session, we will see how the Netherlands companies are looking at India to have it’s IT support and other way. Therefore, IT is helping industries to work in a smarter way.
