CRC food for thought on digital and data

The Food Agility CRC proposes industry joins it in creating data-based supply chains 

The Cooperative Research Centre argues data and digital-driven technologies, “have the capacity to better manage and mitigate the impacts of production and demand volatility, increased climate variability, rising costs of inputs and market access compliance.”

The CRC sets out 12 areas for investment for each of six major industries, “for enhancing supply chain resilience” and proposes agrifood and tech companies join its $10m R&D project.

Eight universities are partners in the CRC, UTS, Curtin U, Federation U, James Cook U, QUT, RMIT, UNE and Charles Sturt U.
