The European Union aims to reduce its dependency on imports of protein crops and become more self-sufficient. The Netherlands developed a National Protein Strategy with a view to increase the production of plant proteins and the utilization of proteins from residual streams and other sources. Can Poland play a (bigger) role in the cultivation of protein crops in the EU?  This and other questions our speakers will try to answer.
