Building a trusty future food system by using blockchain tech

Project description

Blockchain makes it on the menu

As a simple (and ingenious) way of passing information from one point to another in a fully automated and safe manner, blockchain is widely considered to be the next disruption in technology. In addition, it plays a big role in the food and agriculture sectors. The EU-funded TrustEat project will focus on food blockchain through a twinning initiative between Portugal’s International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), Wageningen University & Research (WUR) in the Netherlands and IBM Research in Switzerland. The overall aim of the partnership is to strengthen the research area of food blockchain and for the partners to develop a research and development strategic roadmap. The project will organise training for senior and junior researchers, benchmark activities in research management and different activities with stakeholders, facilitating the transfer of knowledge.
