DRG4FOOD - Why we need a trustworthy data-driven food system
As rapid digital advancements continue to shape the world we live in, market abuses and social injustices pose a significant threat to consumer rights, both in the physical and virtual worlds. Particularly in sensitive systems like the food chain, data-based approaches are important but not easy to implement due to the sheer mass of stakeholders and diversity of interests.
In a context where food safety, security, sustainability, reduction of food waste and fairness throughout the food chain are at the heart of Europe’s food strategy, digitally enhanced approaches to more transparency in the food chain are becoming increasingly important.
In this webinar, the EU-funded DRG4FOOD project aims to show why we need a diverse and human-centric perspective to create a sustainable ecosystem that is “trustworthy by default” and how a data-based approach will help the food system to be compliant to the European Digital Rights and Principles and the Digital Responsibility Goals.
During the presentation, DRG4FOOD, will explain how its activities will contribute to achieve this goal and the expected outcomes of the project. A special focus will be placed on the two Open Calls that will be launched as part of the project to stimulate, engage and financially support third parties (SMEs, research institutions, researchers) in developing and implementing the pilot solutions.
The Webinar will also be a great occasion to get to know FOODITY, the DRG4FOOD sister project funded under the same call, and its work towards a dynamic ecosystem of digital solutions for food and nutrition that respect citizens’ rights to personal data sovereignty in Europe.
