Stitched Panorama

The project organized an open workshop with presentations about global agri-food data initiatives & networks. The workshop has been held in Chania on Friday June the 2nd 2017 in conjunction with the Open Harvest 2017 event and it opened with a keynote speech from Paul Stacey, Associate Director of Global Learning in Creative Commons.

The scope of this workshop was to connect the project activities with global open agri-food data initiatives and networks. Moreover, during the workshop a panel has been planned entitled: “From global challenges to local ones: Linking Communities around the world”, where the panelists discussed with workshop’s participants about how agricultural innovation and open data can facilitate connecting global/grand challenges (such as feeding the increasing population of the planet) with local (coming from farmers’ communities) challenges.

Presentations have been provided among others by representatives from French National Agronomic Institute (INRA), Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the CGIAR, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), the Indian Statistical Institute, CABI, University of Guelph and Global Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN)
