1 PPP approach in The Netherlands & Importance of water Presentatie Topsector Tuinbouw & UitgangsmaterialenMy name is José Vogelezang, I work at Wageningen University and Research Center, but I also support one of the Dutch topsectors in their agenda on Reserach and Innovation. I will give you a brief insight in this new economic policy of The Netherlands and I will explain why we took the initiative for this workshop, together with ERIAFF.Topsector Horticulture & Starting materialsDr. Ir. José Vogelezang
2 39% of agricultural production is from horticulture Almost 40% of our agricultural production comes from horticulture, flowers, fruits and vegetables.
3 Production value Production value Fruits & Vegetables Floriculture Eur 2.6 billionProduction valueFloricultureEur 5.3 billionThe flower and plant sector in the Netherlands accounts for more than 5 billion euro’s in production value. The fruits and vegetable sector is somewhat lower but still more than 2,5 billion Euro’s
4 Value technical supply Horticulture Eur 2 billion ImportEur 8.2 billionValue technical supply Horticulture Eur 2 billionHorticulture is not only primary production and trade of flowers and fruits and vegetables. It covers also a large industry of suppliers to the growers. This is growing industry which also earn their money increasingly abroad.
5 Greenports in the Netherlands Greenport Noord-Holland NoordGreenport Duinen BollenstreekGreenportWestland-OostlandGreenportGelderlandGreenportBoskoopThere are seven areas in The Netherlands with high concentrations of different horticultural sectors. Each Greenport (name of Greenport is inspired on mainport, seaport) has its own governance structure where industry, research and local governent are working together to stimulate economic business.GreenportVenlo
6 On national level these Greenports join forces in Greenport Holland, together with national sector organisations.
7 9 Top sectors in the Netherlands The Top Sectors policy aims to strengthen the position of nine economic sectors in which the Netherlands has a leading position internationally. It sets out an integrated policy for each sector. The key basic components of this integrated approach are: research and innovation, human capital, regulatory framework and the international dimension. A Top Team with representatives from the 'Triple Helix' has been established for each Top Sector. The Triple Helix refers to the relationship between the business community, knowledge institutions and government.The Horticulture & Starting Materials sector is one of the top sectors, thanks to its internationally operating and innovative businesses.

10 Water issues for Horticulture in the Netherlands 15/04/2017Water issues for Horticulture in the NetherlandsWater quality issuesCaused by horticulture: nutrients and pesticidesSurface and groundwaterWater quantity issuesDue to drought and climate changeWater demand agriculture/horticultureDutch growers face serious water and nutrient use restrictions due to emission legislation, and are working towards a zero emission in Tools and strategies are developed to improve existing cropping systems, but also innovative cropping systems are being developed such as soilless cultivation of traditionally soil-grown crops.
11 15/04/2017Workshop: Regional cooperation for innovation on water management in horticultureAim:Facilitate uptake of measures under the Rural development in the new programming periodUse opportunities offered by the EIP Agri / H2020> setting priorities for innovation> connecting stakeholders around project ideas> bringing together research and practiceIn The Netherlands water issues are related mostly to water quality, but in the EU more emphasis has been laid on water quantity (and decreased dependence on nutrients). However, innovative solutions for water quality and emission issues are too a large extent also solutions for water quantity issues. Therefore we took the initiative to organize a EU workshop on Water management in horticulture, together with ERIAFF and WIRE to set the agenda and to give a boost to project development in Europe.

13 15/04/2017Workshop: Regional cooperation for innovation on water management in horticultureFour Challenges to be discussed:Substainable, water an nutrient efficient cropping systemsDecision support systems and application techniques for efficient irrigation and fertilizationStrategies and tools to reduce the environmental impact of Plant Protection Products and nutrients on surface and ground waterStrategies and tools for sustainable soil and substrate managementAs invitees from different EU regions, respresenting industry, academia or governmental bodies, you have chosen the most important challenges to be discussed. I hope that we have a fruitfull workshop today, leading to new coalitions and joint activities.
