With over two hundred CropXR partners, participants and outside stakeholders attending in theFabrique in Utrecht (Netherlands), an array of speakers all demonstrated their passion for collaborating on and contributing to making crops more resilient, sustainable, and climate-adaptive. Together, they will advance data-driven development of crops that are better able to withstand stresses while being less dependent on agricultural practices that cause environmental harm. 

The kick-off event featured extensive opportunities for social interaction, during which future-proof food and drinks were served.
