The network and projects coordinator at the Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology (LIAT) at the University of Lincoln, Steve Brewer, will be speaking at this year’s Technical Conference.
Steve’s background includes the UKRI- Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)-funded Internet of Food Things Network Plus, an interdisciplinary initiative which is working to reduce food waste, increase nutritional value and productivity, and reduce environmental impact across the supply chain, plus a number of Innovate UK projects including Trusted Bytes and Digital Sandwich. Steve is a part-time doctoral candidate at the University of Southampton investigating the role of a previous Network Plus, IT as a Utility as a Living Laboratory.
The food system is facing many challenges today: waste, cost, nutrition, safety, authenticity, and climate change. In the sense of digital information, data offers a range of solutions through technologies such as robots, AI, IoT, drones and telecommunications. Steve will present various insights and potential solutions based on his work and experience.
