Annual report ILVO 2020

Indeed an unusual image on the front page of this annual report. Needless to say, 2020 was no ordinary year. A year in which 2/3 of the ILVO staff had to work permanently from home. For the third that continued to work in the labs, in the stables and on our trial fields, it was a year of wearing face masks, social distancing and constant hand disinfection while at work.

Research-wise, 2020 was a fruitful year. We worked on updating our research strategy under the heading '5G for agriculture and food'. In our case, the "G" in 5G stands for gezondheid; "health" in Dutch. ILVO is committed to 5x Health because, in addition to healthy agricultural production, we want to work on healthy processing, a healthy environment, healthy consumption and healthy socio-economic relationships. Again this year, a number of research projects were funded by various authorities, from municipalities to the European Union.

This annual report gives you a good overview. At the request of our supervising minister Hilde Crevits, a number of themes were given extra attention: new business models, the short chain, farmer well-being and protein diversification.

Enjoy your read!
