Developments in data science offer enormous opportunities for the agri-food chain and life sciences. Advances in information science and technology, data science and analytics, applied to domain specific developments are expected to enable breakthroughs in the agri-food domain. Wageningen University & Research is building on current efforts of applied data science and actively surveying its research domain for new opportunities. Here, we adopt ‘green life sciences’ as a shorthand for this research domain.
The Wageningen Data Competence Center – part of Wageningen University and Research – is organising a one-day scientific symposium on FAIR Data Science for Green Life Sciences. The symposium focuses on state-of-the-art knowledge in data science and data management, new applications in the green life sciences, and insights from other domains that could be transferred. The symposium aims to bring together researchers and domain experts for discussion and exchange of ideas of the latest developments in data science as well as on the best practices within the green life sciences.
