Big data has a significant impact on many aspects of doing business, also in the food and agricultural domain. Big Data does not only concern the amount of data, but is also about the speed of data processing, the value of data analysis and governance of data sharing.

Wageningen University & Research is exploring many different aspects of Big Data across its domains of food, agriculture, environment and marine, also linked to the newly established Wageningen Data Competence Center (WDCC).

Across domains there are challenges in Big Data on respecting privacy and ensuring security, sharing data across players in the value chain and appealing business models, progress in analytics and machine learning.

Get inspired by the state of the art applications of Big Data in the life science domains and discuss these exciting future perspectives with peers from business and science.

The Wageningen Data Competence center will center around the theme of Big Data. Other themes featured at the Company Day will include: Blockchain, Climate Smart and Circular Food Production, CRISPR-Cas, Photosynthesis and Precision Agriculture.
