After that Sander Laurens gave an overview of the activities of the Aeres Group and in particular for the Poultry sector. Dronten offers an HBO education for the sector. It is very important that there are good contacts between the companies in the sector and the school.
Subsequently, various speakers gave an overview of what the Aeres Group has to offer. It is very important to know what the sector needs. In this way things can be coordinated. This subject has been extensively discussed in detail. The presentation slides of the meeting are available on the DPC site. (Click here for presentation)
