Workshop 5: Digital technologies uptake in order to support the future of the food system

A range of digital technologies in the food system are already leading to better informed and engaged consumers and producers, smarter farms and improved public services. These technologies range from simple off-line farmer advisory digital videos to complex systems such as distributed ledger technologies for value chain traceability and forms of precision agriculture. This masterclass will showcase how blockchain technology provides traceability, security and decentralization when dealing with data around food and how farm management systems help farmers optimize production activities and operations on their farms.
