Digital Food Symposium
October 10 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Data technology in the world of Food
As part of the Dutch Food Week, on 10 October we will bring together the top talents in the worlds of food and data. Data becomes valuable the moment it finds a meaningful (economic and/or social) application. Also in the world of food, data plays an increasingly important role. New ideas emerge at the moment you understand what the ‘other’ world can mean for your world. That starts with understanding (knowledge transfer) and talking to each other (meeting). That is what JADS and AgriFood Capital are aiming for with this event.
