Strategic agenda

Co-creation of entrepreneurs, education and government

The essence of Regio Foodvalley is the cooperation between government, entrepreneurs and education. What do the parties want to achieve together? And how will we achieve these results? That is the core of the Strategic Agenda Region Foodvalley. A committee, in which entrepreneurs, education and government are each represented, established the new Strategic Agenda 2020-2025. It is the framework for the programmes and projects that we work on within Regio Foodvalley.

The main ambition formulated in the Strategic Agenda is for Regio Foodvalley to be a top region in the field of agriculture and food by 2030. A region where people are significantly healthier, like to live, do business and innovate and where circularity is common. This will be realized through intensive cooperation between entrepreneurs, education and the government on seven strategic themes. An economic board will be appointed to follow up on the progress in each of these themes.
