Data-driven and digital agriculture have great potential to transform food systems and impact the lives of billions of people. At a Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) panel organized by the World Bank Group, experts will discuss "Data and Digital as Enabler for Circular Agri-Food Systems" on January 20, 2023. Joining the panel is Prof. Cornelia Weltzien, Head of Department for Agromechatronics at ATB.

Digital technologies are dramatically changing the interactions between farmers, processing companies, consumers and public institutions. Digital platforms can create and foster new business models needed to transform agri-food systems around the world toward a circular economy. Digitization can enable circular agri-food systems by overcoming technical barriers and information asymmetries.

In the panel "Data and Digitization for Circular Agriculture and Food Systems" organized by the World Bank Group, experts will first provide the audience with an overview of current discourses and will be available for questions and suggestions in the second part.
