(Webinar) KnowFOOD-WASTED: Characterizing food waste data streams and identifying opportunities to reduce waste

Professor and food waste expert Brian Roe will be a guest on the KnowFOOD - WASTED webinar. This episode focuses on looking at how can we use technology to better understand the sources of food loss and waste, the interventions that will prevent them and the potential for upscaling specific food components. We will also ask what sorts of cyberinfrastructures and sociotechnical systems will best enable the circular economy of food? What data is needed? How might we best facilitate interoperability?

Dr. Roe will specifically discuss new efforts in process to develop ontologies around food loss and waste and related interventions, and how these and other technological developments can translate into more effective food policy for reduction and redirection of food waste.
