About the Conference:
We are excited to announce the launch of the 1st International Conference on Digital Innovation in Agri-food. Hosted by the University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada) and the Wageningen University & Research (the Netherlands), this event will be held at the University of Guelph, in-person, on June 8 2023. This conference follows a workshop which is scheduled on June 6-7.
This conference will create an inter- and trans‐disciplinary forum for researchers, agriculture and food experts, social scientists, technologists, computer scientists, engineers, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and philosophers to collaborate, exchange experiences, and discuss digital innovation ecosystem requirements in agri-food. Some of the key messages of the conference will be produced during the two-day workshop that is held prior to the conference.
The event is for academics and practitioners who are actively engaged in debates related to data and technology, opportunities and implications, in agri-food and are interested in topics related to technology adoption, sustainability, governance, economy, new business models, food supply chain resilience, ethical and responsible innovation, and other related topics in digital agri-food. The conference seeks to foster cross-sectoral and inter-disciplinary conversations about the following themes:
o Data Economy for Food Systems (monetary and non-monetary values/goals)
o Responsible Digitalization (Ethics, Governance, Legislation)
o Technological Infrastructure (Artificial Intelligence, Data and Robotics)
o Food Integrity (Traceability, Transparency, Safety and Authenticity)
o Common Data Spaces and Research Data Infrastructures
