MILAN, April 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Museon has created an exhibition about the Dutch agri-food industry for World Expo 2015 in Milan. Titled Dutch Innovation Zone, the exhibition sheds light on the reputation of the Netherlands in areas of scientific research, revolutionary innovation, and international collaboration. Potato seed and food printers are only two examples of Dutch innovations that could contribute to the search for sustainable solutions to global food issues. By 2050, the population of our planet is estimated to reach nine billion people. It will be impossible to produce enough food to feed everybody. A number of groundbreaking Dutch innovations can contribute to solutions for this problem.

Jozias van Aartsen, mayor of The Hague, will unveil the Dutch Innovation Zone in Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci in Milan on April 22. The press is cordially invited to attend. You can register by email: [email protected] / phone: +31-70-3381423
Dutch Innovation Zone
The exhibition at Museon in The Hague is in line with the theme for World Expo 2015: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. One of the biggest issues we face is how to provide food and water for the global population in the near future. Dutch Innovation Zone shows how committed the Netherlands is to this matter. In three related segments - Share, Live and Grow - the exhibition uses interactive and educational concepts to illustrate positions held by the Netherlands.
The Netherlands is the second largest exporter of agricultural products in the world. Dutch production of agri-food is five times higher than the European average. These and other statistics are displayed on the walls of the exhibition hall in the form of compelling infographics. A spectacular projection table in the Share segment illustrates how Dutch agri-food products travel around the world. The prominent role of the Netherlands in the global food chain is illustrated by data visualization of a world map and products.
European collaboration within the ECSITE network have facilitated the coordination of this project at Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci. Topics under discussion at the Dutch Innovation Zone are closely related to the challenges and solutions presented by Museon in "Your Planet", a new permanent exhibition which will be unveiled in 2017.
