ICT-AGRI-FOOD: More transparent agri-food systems for consumers and other stakeholders along the food value chain based on ICT technologies
Bundeministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft
The scope of the 2022 Joint Call is based on the ICT-AGRI-FOOD vision, which explicitly sets out to bring together actors from across the entire food system (from conventional and organic supply chains) in a multi-actor approach. The challenge is to develop systems that are efficient, effective, equitable, trustable and transparent while enhancing sustainability of these.
This call encourages the submission of research proposals with a potential impact relevant for enabling digital technology solutions towards a transition for more sustainable, transparent and resilient agri-food systems.
The development and integration of new digital technologies for precision agriculture/smart farming, logistics, food processing, supply chain management, traceability, business transaction should also favour transparency and traceability for all stakeholders, from farmers all way down to consumers and not least policy and decision makers.
Relevant effects along the value chain should be also considered, combining impacts on two or more phases including: primary production, manufacturing and processing, food packaging, distribution, consumers' behaviour and attitude, household as well as catering consumption, including questions regarding wastes and losses through the food chain.
Transparency is a critical component of modern food systems. Transparency of food production from farm to fork is crucial to inform consumers, authorities and food system actors on product characteristics such as origin, production method, ingredients and safety, quality, quantity and on sustainability and ethical aspects of products and processes. It is also a crucial factor in ensuring food traceability and authenticity and economic planning.
It is expected that the proposals will:
- Support farmers and food businesses to increase the sustainability of their products, including organic sector, as primary component of the food system, and processes;
- Increase transparency efficiency and effectiveness of traceability across food systems;
- Increase the capacity of authorities and policymakers that deal with food safety and sustainability, to monitor the performance of different parts and processes of the food system;
- Propose new transparency solutions that are demand-driven, in line with the relevant legal frameworks, and cost-effective.
Farmers and other actors along the agri-food value chain need to profit from being involved and using digital technologies and they need to get an incentive to share the data they produce.
This call will support transnational, multi-disciplinary projects that provide knowledge-based (data-driven) advice and tools for relevant actors along the agri-food value chain, including also the governmental level, to develop new ideas, advice for policies, subsidies and laws that address sustainable, eco-friendly and sound agri-food management practices.
Proposals should address one of the the following topics.
- Agri-food systems enabled by interconnected digital technologies that are more transparent to consumers, farmers and other stakeholders along the agri-food value chain
- Identify, address and remove barriers for adoption of ICT technologies in the agri- food systems
- Development and impact estimation (if applicable: evaluation) of data-driven reward and incentive systems to support sustainable and resilient farm management practices
