Discovering the value
of data economy
in European food systems
We need to address the lack of understanding of multiple aspects of the Data Economy for Food Systems in which data are not only a new economic asset, but a strategic good in the transition to sustainable food systems and to a fair and inclusive society.
We need to deepen our understanding and shared perspective of its development, performance and impact, using an interdisciplinary systems approach to avoid possible pitfalls and to ensure that it leads to a desirable future state.
The evolution of IT
A paradigm shift, towards a more responsible research and innovation and systems approach, which integrates technological and social aspects of innovation, is needed to navigate properly through the twilight zone towards a fair, inclusive and innovative Data Economy for Sustainable Food Systems.
