    Hidden hunger is a growing issue in developed economies. An estimated 8.4 million people in the UK struggle to get enough to eat, a situation that will likely worsen due to the effects of the current global pandemic.

    In this first Webinar in what we hope will be an informative series on UK Food Poverty and insecurity, Dianna Smith of Southampton University talks to us about the important work her and colleagues are doing at the intersection between open data, geographic information system mapping (GIS) and food poverty.

    Towards Responsible Plant Data Linkage Workshops

    Although considerable progress has been made over recent years on the development of tools for agricultural data standardisation, sharing and analysis; there remain many technical, political and socioeconomic challenges to ensuring data solutions are FAIR (findeable, accessible, interoperable and resueable) and equitable.

    The University of Exeter and the Alan Turing Institute are bringing together key global initiatives (CGIAR, IITA, FAO, USDA, among others), as well as scholars of history, philosophy, social studies, and plant and agricultural science. GODAN's Foteini Zampati, Eliane Ubalijoro and Suchith Anand will be presenting a session on Ethical and Legal Considerations in Smart Farming: A Farmer’s Perspective during the March 26 Workshop.
