Join us for a free webinar on March 4th – World Engineering Day (WED) for Sustainable Food Development. WED is an opportunity to celebrate engineering and the contribution of the world’s engineers for a better, sustainable world. Through the ingenuity of engineers the solutions for the 21st Century challenges are made possible.
The webinar will showcase new innovations that are in the pipeline or already being applied across the food system from farm to fork. It will highlight the application of advances in engineering in the area of artificial intelligence, satellite data, satellite network, quantum computing and IoT are crucial for a sustainable food system that involves regenerative farming, mixed farming, crop rotation, etc.
This webinar will also address a range of topics on how engineering is used to address the challenge of food loss & waste, increasing crop yields, improving land & water management, utilising degraded land for farming, extending the shelf life of agrifood produce, remanufacturing of Agrifood technologies, evolving sustainable food supply chains and improving the citizen behaviour via increased awareness on nutritional and health value of food.
Born in a small town in sub-Saharan Africa, Dr Ifeyinwa Kanu, the CEO and Founder of IntelliDigest grew up with a great love of nature and passion for creating things from scraps around her. Following her PhD in Environmental Engineering, she founded IntelliDigest building on that love for nature and the need to evolve a more circular economy.
IntelliDigest aim to support the birth of global circular food systems, which are resilient, robust and capable of feeding the growing global population.
